Hybrid Willow

Sitting in the woods looking at next years projects and was wondering do hybrid willow tolerate their feet to be wet for 30 days after melt in the spring and a few days after a big rain.

I have this question too. I have a low canary grass area that gets wet often and I want to add some cover. Also wondering which willows would be best as there are so many on BigRockTrees.com! Gets me thinking if I could get some 4'+ tall "cuttings" to plant they may stand a chance to get going...

Go out and cut yourself some local, native, dormant willow "switches" from an area with similar conditions this winter, store them in a cool place, and come spring just shove them in the ground about 2' in the area you want them in, done deal.

I have a few Steamco that I'm going to plant this weekend that are rooted. I know they will work but I wanted to buy some hybrid willow cutting and stick them next spring for a fast screen.

Not sure if John sells them, but "bigfoot" hybrid willow will tolerate a lot of moisture. I'm sure most varieties will work just fine. Native sandbar willow, while not a hybrid, can tolerate being inundated for weeks without hurting them.
