I think it's fairly common knowledge that willows like it wet & their root systems have been known to seek sewers, septic tanks, etc.
I don't think the willows would do well if they weren't getting steady moisture.
I'm trying to find out which species of willow would work well in Oklahoma-to be coppiced. I'm wanting to end up with withies or slightly bigger, for doing basketry, furniture, etc.
The problem I'm having chasing down info, is that every site only talks about how cold hardy a given willow is, not how hot hardy. Our summers here tend to be long, hot and dry.
