Black Maul Willow

Salix trianda 'Black Maul'

Other names for species: Almond leaved willow.

Bark of new growth is very dark. Varieties of this willow are used world wide for basketry.

Left on it's own, Black Maul grows into a large shrub/multi-stem tree. If cut back to the ground, it will produce a thicket of 6-8 foot rods suitable for basket making, and the finer parts of willow furniture.

If you are landscaping with willow, this is a good contrast specimen to alternate with a red or yellow stem variety.
