Common Osier Willow Trees (Salix viminalis)
A British native which can grow between 4-7m, this willow is great for pollinators and other wildlife. The Lackey and Herald moth are dependent on the Osier. The stems are used for basket making and weaving and the Osier is known for it’s ability to absorb heavy metals, which is why it is sometimes used on contaminated waste ground!
