Salix x fragilis f. vitellina ‘Flame' Red has bright green foliage, bright red stems and pale yellow green catkins. The Red Flame Willow is an upright, dense shrub that grows to 12 ft tall and 8 ft wide. Stems have an orange-red glow year round, but in late October turn brilliant red, providing the most wonderful winter interest in the garden. Regular coppicing encourages great stem colour, as does full sun. A wonderful willow for cut flower arrangements, and for basketry (dries to a light shiny reddish brown). Highly ornamental colour, but not necessarily the easiest variety for basket making as it tends to be brittle. Fresh stem colour; orange-red. Dried rod colour: shiny reddish-brown
