Just thought I would get my question on the front list again. Perhaps this type of willow does not grow in the Edmonton Area. I sure would love to know what type of willow it is and where I can get some. Thanks Wendy

Wendy, I was Told buy a man that makes willow furniture that the willow used for this craft was the species of willow that grows in swampy areas or very wet locations. hope I could help.

Wendy the correct willow is abundant in the Edmonton area . I'd highly recommend taking a course vs using a reference guide. I bought several pieces from Winsor Willows & friends have taken his courses & made exactly the things that he sells. Graham the owner is in the forces so course availability depends on his posting. I wish I could find his address (lost in the chaos) but he lives in Namao or you could probably locate him through the St. Albert Chamber of Commerce as he's been a regular exhibitor at the summer Farmers Market.Hope this helps
