At Barfad Willow I currently have twelve varieties available for sale. I am also nuturing three beautiful new varieties, Carl Jensen, Polish Blue and Nicolonnsi which should become available in the next few years - if the deer don't take too much of a liking for them that is...
For Brown Willow:
Continental Purple (Salix daphnoides): A stunning deep purple willow which develops a white bloom when dry. It's quite stout and therefore not so popular for basket making - but I can't resist growing it because it is such an incredible colour. Some people like to use it for living willow structures.
