Dwarf Blue Leaf Arctic Willow
One of The Most Useful Plants In Your Garden
Some plants may not be strikingly beautiful, but they’re still attractive and solve a problem. The Dwarf Blue Leaf Arctic Willow is one of those plants. There are no showy flowers in the spring, no glowing color in the fall.
What makes it a truly useful plant, though, is that it LOVES the wet spots in your yard and it makes a great alternative to tall ornamental grasses in colder regions.
The Dwarf Blue Leaf Arctic Willow has a nice willow-leaved texture and a soft, wispy look and will wave gracefully in a breeze. The leaves are shades of blue-green and silver and rustle in the wind. It is perfect for the back of the border and is a great companion to shrub roses and climbing roses. It offsets rigid conifers and flat fences with its swaying stems. Use it to soften the corners of your house or to flank a garden gate.
Where this plant really shines is in the low, wet spots in your yard where other plants whither and rot. The Dwarf Blue Leaf Arctic Willow is often used by public works departments in swales and water treatment sites because of its easy breezy attitude and thirsty nature.
Did we mention the slender purple branches that are left in late fall when the leaves drop off? These add nice winter interest to your landscape.
