Rosemary Salix planting at 3 years old
The Rosemary Salix has dense growth and fine textured leaves similar to the herb
Rosemary. Stems turn a deep purple/brown in winter. Provides excellent screening
spring through late fall. Leaves are silver on the underside and hang on very late
into the fall. This shrub has grown to 10 ft. tall and 8 ft. wide in 3 years in
our trials and is seedless. Thrives in moist and wet sites but is moderately drought
tolerant. Great year round windbreak under power lines due to its controlled height
and dense branch structure. For best results plant at 6 ft. spacing.
