Salix alba var vitellina
Common name: Golden willow
Our specimen at the top of the Waterfall is used for natural fencing. In 2021 the fencing around the Waterfall was removed because it is too much work to keep it trimmed, and it is not very functional along the stone steps. A new willow fence has been created in the Sunflower Garden to prevent visitors from getting bitten by fire ants. See Garden Story.
