Small narrow blue foliage (actually greenish above and blue beneath) and delicate thin long red or green stems on a medium-sized spreading shrub. 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 overgrown, cut it to the ground every couple of years and it’ll come right back. Native Europe to North Africa to Japan. Z3. Maine Grown. (1-2' bare-root plants)
