Willow Harvest

Here is the 2007 harvest cut in January 2008, I love all the glowing colours.  The collection has about 60 varieties of cultured basketry willow with a few oddballs thrown in.

How cold does it get where you live and are growing your willow? I'm in northern Minnesota about 60 miles from the Canadian border. Several years ago I planted nine varieties that I purchased from a grower in southern Iowa. My sally garden just isn't happening, and I'm speculating that it's too cold here at -50 Fahrenheit some winters. Maybe I need a more hardy variety?
