A society that gets rid of all its troublemakers goes downhill.
Robert A. Heinlein

Belgian Red Willow

Salix fragilis 'Belgian Red'

This willow can be raised as a tree or as a shrub. Raised as a tree, it's one of our larger willows, getting up to 20 meters high.

Pruned close to ground it will coppice into a shrub. Stems can be harvested annually or bi-annually for basketry. New growth starts green, but turns red in the fall, generating winter interest.
