Small tree or large upright shrub with beautiful narrow silvery leaves, giving a delicate and graceful appearance. Fast growing.

Prefers a damp, heavy soil in a sunny position but will succeed in most soils. Does not thrive well on chalk.

By cuttings from young growth, which usually root quite easily.

By seed sown as soon as it is ripe.
The flowers are dioecious and only one sex is to be found on any one plant so both male and female plants must be grown to produce fertile seed. Flowers are pollinated by Bees

other notes:
In the wild it form thickets along esturies and watercourses.
