Fast Growing Privacy - Grows an Amazing 6-10 Feet a Year!

Sometimes you hear something that seems too good to be true. “You may have just won a million dollars!” “Drive a new car off of the lot for $0 down and $12 a month!” “The Willow Hybrid grows an amazing 6-10 feet a year!”

Now you have heard something that is too good AND too true. The Willow Hybrid (Salix Willow Hybrid) really DOES grow 6-10 feet a year. The Willow Hybrid is actually a cross between Salix alba and Salix matsudana (white willow and corkscrew willow).

Planted in full sun or part shade and given plenty of water, this willow will block any undesirable view you have in as little as a year! It can reach its full mature height of 50 – 75 feet in just 4-5 years. If that’s more height than you need, the Willow Hybrid is easily pruned to stay within bounds.

Plant them 3 feet apart in single rows for dense cover in a year; plant 5 feet apart in double staggered rows for a snow-stopping windbreak. Even though the willow drops its leaves in the winter, if planted densely enough the branches still provide an effective privacy hedge and wind break all season long. Willow Hybrid is easily sheared to whatever height you like. Use it as a foundation hedge as easily as a fencebreak.

Extremely disease and pest resistant, the Willow Hybrid is hardy from Canada to Florida and can thrive in most any soil.

Add value to your home by shielding that unsightly wall or that neighbor’s unpainted shed with a thick green living wall. Purchase a row’s worth of Hybrid Willows from Nature Hills Nursery today! Order now to avoid disappointment! They tend to sell quickly.

Highly recommend Review by bully max
Their support team is awesome. They got these shipped out on extremely short notice and they arrive right on time. They're already thriving.
Massive and wonderful Review by JL
I started with a few thinking they might die as the predecessors.
For the first year I was skeptical since one was dead all. most the day it arrived the second lasted for a month or so then died the third showed promise after the others died and this was actually leafing out a bit.
Three and a half years on and I couldn't be happier - so happy I bought three or four more. The original has now surpassed the chimney top and is a bit taller than my old pines and catalogs. I made the mistake of planting it in an area that is getting a bit tight as the width is fully coming into its own and spreading wider than my tubular bushes. The last measure was somewhere around seven or eight feet around the base. I love it and the other three or four are taking off as well. Excellent privacy but thin enough for light and a small view thru. I have neglected this first one and now I want them everywhere but impractical. Excellent for your money.
Screening tree Review by Karen S
I would recommend the Willow Hybrid tree for any location that you want fast growth. Good looking tree also.
Just what I needed Review by Jessie Barnes
Bought this as a wind screen and it's already grown enough after a year to be effective.
Awesome Review by JL
Bought this as a bush to go in an area that has had trouble with many other shrubs, often they die off in the first or second year due to soil conditions and other issues. This has not only grown but has flourished! I found it best to 'neglect' it, often only watering it once a week in the first year. This is the third year and it has already shot up over the roofline. The only negative thing I could ever think of with this is that it isn't as round as I would have liked. Love it in the spring when all the leaves are in full, almost excited to see what it will look like this spring. Thank you for recommending this to me.
