Willow (Artic Blue) 2-3'


Blue arctic willow is a medium to tall introduced shrub growing 10 to 20 feet high. It features blue-green leave in pairs, almost opposite that are elliptical in shape and are 2 to 4 inches long. 

Light green flowers bloom in late April, eventually with ornamentally insignificant fruit. The stems are smooth and slender. They are purplish in the first year's growth but later change to gray or olive-gray. Growth is rapid, reaching from 2 to 8 feet in two years. It often reaches a full height of 15-20 feet in five years. On nutrient-rich sites, it can grow up to 25 feet.

Well-drained to saturated soils are most suitable for this species. It is tolerant of standing water. It is adaptable to poor soils, soils of various pH, dry soils, and drought. Does not do well in areas with intense heat and high humidity. Prefers full sun to partial shade.  (UofM Info)
