An exceptionally rare and fine form from Newfoundland of this northern tier species. It actually dips into NE Washington. This selection just kicks butt on the typical form. Nice spring catkins but it's the foliage! Soft silver gray leaves on a plant wider than it is tall. See it in our border.
A graceful Willow from SE France and Italy often referred to as the Rosemary Willow. The narrow leaves are bright silver white underneath which contrast nicely with the burnished mahogany stems on the new growth, This can be trained to a small tree or coppiced for a dense bush.
Nothing willowy about this Chinese Willow! Stiffly erect stems hold large rounded leaves evocative of Magnolia than Salix. Pinkish new growth adds to the charm and the catkins are impressive on this male clone. Likes a good moist soil to to really do its best.
