The Salix caprea ‘Pendula’ Tree otherwise known as the Kilmarnock Willow Tree that is home to furry yellow catkins in the Spring that are popular with the wildlife, particularly the bees. The leaves of the Kilmarnock Willow are ovate, dark green and have grey furry undersides that accommodate the branches throughout the year. In Winter, the tree looks incredible draped in snow or frost.

The Salix caprea ‘Pendula’, among other Willows, is a very adaptable tree as they will grow in a variety of conditions - including waterlogged soils. However, they do require an area that receives a lot of sun.
The Kilmarnock Willow Tree was discovered by the side of the River Ayr in Scotland in the 1850’s and was propagated by Thomas Lang of Kilmarnock hence its name. It also received the ‘Award of Merit’ in 1977.
