Salix nigra is usually known as the black willow, or sometimes swamp willow due to its ability to thrive alongside water. Willow trees of all types are renowned for their numerous, delicate leaves and whippy branches which make them picture book pretty in a breeze, the pale underside of the leaves giving them an undulating water look as they move around. The black willow is actually the largest of the North American native willows and can reach an impressive 184 feet at their very tallest, although are generally between 33 and 98 feet. The black willow is perfect for planting alongside water as their roots provide strength to banks and shores, as well as a good many hiding places for birds and butterflies. If you have the space to plant a large tree that will flourish in moist soil and full sunlight then you really cannot go wrong with something as imposing yet delicate as the black willow.
