Fast Growing Hedge Screen... That is Blue

Salix purpurea Nana is a plant with many names, including the most common, Dwarf Blue Arctic Willow, and a very interesting color scheme.

This shrub’s slender purple stems are littered with dark green foliage, each leaf marked by a blue tint to its underside. 
Adaptable to any soil, the Arctic Willow thrives best in direct sunlight, though it can tolerate some shade. 
Although it is called Dwarf, this shrub or hedge has a great deal of growth potential. Most will top out at 5 feet in height, while others can grow to 8 feet and taller. 
A moderate grower, the Arctic Willow tolerates any soil, so long it is watered regularly.

Used primarily as a screen plant, the Dwarf Blue Arctic Willow can also be found as part of trimmed hedges.

I have this Dwarf Blue Arctic Willow in my backyard flower garden and it is just beautiful.

This Dwarf Arctic Blue Willow is one of the prettiest bushes I have ever seen. The sun & wind play with the leaves, giving beautiful highlights to any spot its planted. Does very well up here.

I have 8 dwarf artic willow planted in a ring of gardens surrounding a Dwarf Alberta Spruce...I used the willows after box wood failed to grow in the wet clay soil.....the oldest has been in for 3 years and this is the second year for the others.....They look the center gardens of my yard....a magical fairy ring quality. I love these trees.

This is my favorite plant by far. This is an elegant yet hardy plant. LOVELY. They do indeed have a magical quallity about them.

I have 20 in a row, I love them they are really a wonderful screen.

We live in Central Iowa and have really cold winters, wet springs, hot summers and wet fall. We have 5 blue artic willows in the worst clay soil you could ever see. These plants do AMAZING. They actually suck up moisture to the point of drying out the soil. We live on a hill so the soil can sometime take weeks to dry out. There is about a 5 foot circle around each Blue willow shrub that is bone dry. These plants just love moisture and look good as well.
