Native to Europe, Northern Africa and Central Asia, the Dwarf Arctic Willow is grown for its attractive purple stems, which move gracefully in the wind. It has greyish blue foliage, with purple-green catkins blooming in May. Its thin stems make it very suitable to be used for fine basketry.

This deciduous shrub grows to 5 ft in height and width, and makes a good hedge or wind break. The branches are so dense that they will prevent deer to go through. Blue arctic willows never need pruning. You just need to enjoy it and relax!

Salix purpurea 'Nana' is very hardy! It can thrive in USDA hardiness zone 2 and withstand temperatures as low as -45.6 °C (-50 °F).
