This form of the familiar white willow of damp fields and water-meadows is the scarlet or coral bark willow, a stunningly beautiful tree grown in gardens as a coppiced shrub. Most willows can be cut back regularly to induce a constant supply of new stems, and this is particularly useful with coloured-bark varieties, since their young growth has the most brilliant colours. 'Britzensis', often listed under its old name 'Chermesina', has remarkable orange-scarlet stems and twigs, the vivid colouring lasting all winter and into the second year. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
