  • Wild and Wonderful Willows of the Arboretum

Beautiful willows, such as the Salix gracilistyla ‘Melanostachys’ pictured here, are blooming in the Arboretum’s Witt Winter Garden and beyond. In the latest issue of the Arboretum Bulletin, writer and estate gardener Daniel Mount discusses the wild and weedy willows in the Arboretum wetlands and the ornamental species and varieties planted in the collection at large.

He also writes about the natural history, evolution, and ethnobotany of this fascinating genus of plants.
