Willows for fire wood and pleasure

    Hi all,
    last spring I set some willows in a bog (not too wet- it is not water logged) and I am guessing that the salix alba will have proven the best among the species I planted. It's about 1.5 miles from the coast but is not too windswept.

    I also set salix fragilis and salix pentandra. Not sure how well these will survive the conditions into their 2nd year. I wait and see:D

    Any thoughts on nice looking willows you have set in peat that is easy to grow and hardy?
