Hybrid Salix Austree Willow BUSH Starts FASTEST Growing Privacy and Windbreak!
Debating on putting in a fence for privacy or wind blockage? Consider the amazing Australian hybrid willow. Much cheaper, MUCH more beautiful, and keeps your yard so much cooler! Once established, this magnificent bush grows as high as 20'. The first profile photo is a bush that is only 3 years old! The more water they get, the faster they grow. SUPER drought and heat tolerant too!
Not only are they used for privacy they are also a BEAUTIFUL accent plant in your yard!!!
You will receive 50 BUSH starts. For a privacy fence, it is important that you AT LEAST plant them every 5 feet. For effective WIND BLOCK in winter when they loose their leaves, it is recommended that you stagger two rows and plant them 10 feet apart with an 8 foot space between rows (obviously the closer you plant them... the thicker and more excellent the hedge) With this formula you can cut wind down 30-40%- that's without leaves!!! (Additionally, if you want to ensure survival of your hedge, we have found that planting 3 starts in one hole is very effective in eliminating the occasional start that dies as they form one giant root ball.)
These Bushes are LIVE plants that just need to be tapped aprox. 3-4" into the soil and watered heavily (for 5X the growth and best results, place them standing up in a bucket of 3-4 inches of water and keep watered). We call this the 'Jump-Start' technique and we will send you detailed instructions when you order. These starts come with other tried and tested instructions for optimum growth and survival. Still, if you don't want to go to the trouble, due to the nature of this unique tree you can plant them directly in the soil when you receive them as they do not need any roots or leaves to start. (some come as a bare start, but others due to inventory rotation, go out with small roots and leaves- either way it doesn't effect final growth or size if you follow the instructions included)
This Bush is truly incredible with its speed of growth but it also is an amazing beauty with vibrant green foliage, gorgeous slender leaves, and overall round shape which can be pruned as an umbrella. As with all live plants, the buyer should anticipate some natural die-off as they would planting anything - a certain amount do not make it. Please order accordingly.
