Fine-Textured Shrub Works Hard

For a great look without any trouble, try the Dwarf Blue Leaf Arctic Willow (Salix purpurea 'Nana'). Like all Willows, this is a water-lover, and tolerates most soils, unlike so many other shrubs that demand well-drained soils. This is a perfect plant for tough situations, and it always looks fantastic.

You'll love the soft, wispy texture, and the way Dwarf Blue Leaf Arctic Willow waves gracefully in a breeze. The leaves are shades of blue-green and silver and rustle in the wind. Motion and sound are so important in an integrated landscape.

It 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 as a low hedge along a patio, property line or rock wall.

Because it fills all the way to the ground, it gives an airy sense of privacy. You'll love the screening without feeling like there is a visual barricade. Let it grow as tall as you want, or it's simple to prune in early spring to keep it shorter, and to enjoy that fresh, cute, bright green new growth.

A great use for this plant is in the low, wet spots in your yard where other plants wither and rot. In fact, public works departments use this plant in swales and water treatment sites because of its easy, breezy attitude and thirsty nature. Use these shrubs as the "backbone" of a wonderful rain garden.

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.

Don't wait to order this problem-solver from Nature Hills Nursery. It will become one of your most prized garden additions!

  • Silver Blue Wispy Foliage
  • Rounded Shrub
  • Provides an Airy Privacy Screen
  • Tolerates Wet Areas
