Description + Attributes:

A hardy, tough and extremely adaptable smaller accent tree featuring flaming orange-red branches that make for a particularly breathtaking relief from the white of winter.  Flame willow is grown for its ornamental qualities.  Both in summer and in winter, the branches of the red form retain a bright orangey-red glow.

The numerous branches of this willow are especially striking against dark evergreens.  There are two ways to grow this plant – pruned or left to grow to its natural form.

  • Makes an excellent choice for screening and informal hedges.
  • Provides a great accent piece to any landscaping design.
  • Foliage is green throughout spring and summer then turns to a lovely golden color in the fall. 
  • This plant takes on an oval form at maturity.
