Typing our Willow Cuttings

All of the products we ship are grown from trees on our farm. We do not sell products that come from a third party. Our trees are named by using the source material name when we originally acquired it. We provide photos and videos of the foliage for you to confirm type through your own research. Unfortunately we can't provide genetic testing or an extended pedigree. If you have any questions about a specific product, please contact us.

Specific Cultivar Information

Other than a brief description, we don't go into detail on whether a plant will or will not survive in your location. There are too many variables. We are maritime pacific northwest zone 8A. Our winter cold temperatures will occasionally dip into the low 20's but can go lower. The mother plants of all our cuttings survive unprotected outdoors here. Because we don't have any experience with these plants in other zones, we don't provide specific growing information for other locations.  Willow trees are very hardy but please use your trusted resources to make a decision on what will work in your area.

How we harvest and store our cuttings and scionwood

In the winter, all of our willow cuttings are harvested when they are dormant. Immediately after the harvest, we store them in a climate controlled cooler at 37F. Based on our experience, willow cuttings are still viable after up to 120 days in storage.

In the summer, we harvest willow cuttings the day before they ship. We recommend they be potted up and immediately after you receive them.

Some Specifics on our Willow Cuttings

In the summer, willow cuttings will generally be at least 5/16" in diameter but some varieties such as Dwarf Arctic willow and the finer basketry types will be much narrower. Our cuttings are all at least eight inches long with pointed end facing down.

How we process your order

We sell when we are ready to ship and do not presale. We only ship on Mondays (or Tuesdays if Monday is a holiday) to avoid having the plant material spend the weekend in the postal system. For more information on how we ship, see our shipping policies.
