A dwarf, weeping tree with dark green leaves with grey-green undersides. In mid- to late spring, the bare branches are covered in golden male catkins, which look superb in cut-flower arrangements. An ideal tree for the small garden 'Kilmarnock' is an architectural and pollinator friendly specimen plant that would also suit a large patio pot.

  • Garden care:
    Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches in late autumn or winter. When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole.
