Much sought-after jewel of the rock garden is this slow dwarf Willow.  William Boyd found this in the mountains of Angus in Scotland and it is thought to be a natural hybrid of Salix reticulata x S. lapponica with maybe S. herbacea as well just for good measure.  A female clone, the original plant was 6' tall but unless you got this as a present celebrating your birth, it might be best to keep your expectations in check.  This is prized by rock gardeners for its slow 1"-3" of growth per year with nice rounded foliage and stoutly twiggy habit which makes it ideal for troughs or exposed positions in the rock garden.   Always spendy, always worth it - these are nice gallon plants.
