Missouri Willow (Salix eriocephala)
|Common Name||Latin Name||Plant Family|
The stems are tough and very flexible, they are used in basket making[199, 257]. The plant is usually coppiced annually when grown for basket making, though it is possible to coppice it every two years if thick poles are required as uprights.
The cultivar ‘Green USA’ is ideal as a windbreak, it tolerates very poor light soils.
The plants extensive root system make it effective at binding the soil along the sides of streams.
Wood – more durable that that of most willows, it is used for fence posts[82, 229].
