Salix purpurea 'Nana'

Willow. Dwarf Arctic

Also called Dwarf Purple Osier, this versatile shrub is small enough to include in a low-maintenance border in the garden. Very compact and refined, the slate blue color works easily into many designs. It responds well to pruning for an interestingly shaped topiary or to develop a low, wide hedge. The design potential of this willow is endless. Wonderful fall color and thrives in poor soil. Very useful in colder climates and perfect in medieval herb gardens, knot gardens and even containers. Sways beautifully in a gentle breeze. Syn: Salix purpurea var. gracilis

Salix chaenomeloides

Pussy Willow, Giant

Catkins the size of a rabbit's foot. The large dark red flower buds on mahogany branches develop into exceptionally large, silky gray catkins with a lovely pink tinge on upright red stems. Heavy pruning to the ground as soon as catkins begin to drop and leaves are emerging stimulates more vigorous growth and larger catkins.
