Are the roots of a Willow Hybrid invasive?
This tree is noninvasive, but it should be planted clear of any underground piping or wiring since it grows so rapidly.
How long will this tree live?
Since it’s disease-resistant and hardy, you can enjoy this tree for many decades!
This tree is very adaptable to many types of soils, and it prefers a slightly acidic to slightly alkaline soil, in the pH range of 6.5 to 7.5.
Adding a 3- to 4-inch layer of mulch around your Hybrid Willow Tree (covering the ground underneath the widest reach of the branches) will help keep the soil moist.
Although your Hybrid Willow Tree will prosper in a part-sun location (4 to 6 hours of direct sun daily), it'll grow faster and perform its best if you plant it where it receives full sun, or at least 8 hours of direct sun each day.
If you plant your Hybrid Willow Trees 20 feet apart, you'll have mature trees that touch each other's outer branches -- for a more open look. But if you want a dense screen, space your plants 10 feet apart. And for an even thicker hedge, plant a double row of staggered trees, particularly if you want a windbreak.
Moist soil is best; this is not a highly drought-tolerant tree, so you'll need to water it during times of drought. Water newly planted trees frequently, until their roots become established.
Since this tree grows well in soils with average fertility, a soil test will quickly determine if you need to add nutrients to your planting site, and it will also measure the soil pH.
This is a "self-pruning tree," which means you won’t need to maintain its shape and the wind will tend to prune the branches for you! Just pick up the downed limbs and discard them.
