Description
 
Creeping Himalayan Willow or Lindley's Willow.  One of around 200 plants carrying John Lindley's name. such was the impact of this English botanist on the fields of botany and horticulture in the middle 1800's.  Have to think Professor Lindley would be well pleased to see how this little high elevation willow has stood the test of time remaining well-regarded nearly 150 years after its introduction.  Use this as a small ground cover or a small spiller over a wall or container with its new growth having reddish stems and last year's stems sporting cute little catkins.  Not a fan of hot climates, this is for cooler northern gardens and will be hardy to zone 4.
