Blue Leaf Arctic WillowSalix purpurea ‘Nana’ 3-5' x 3-6' Selection of Purple Osier willow.
Medium-sized spreading shrub with small narrow blue foliage (actually greenish above and blue beneath) and delicate thin long red or green stems.
The graceful thin stems sucker, layer and form a thick and highly attractive ornamental mass. Long cultivated and coppiced for a fine-textured basket-making material.
Excellent bank or hedge plant, especially in wet areas but also quite suitable for a highly visible location. We’ve seen it looking great in a perennial bed. If it gets too overgrown, cut it to the ground every couple of years and it’ll come right back.
Native Europe to North Africa to Japan. Z3. (1-2' bare-root plants)
