Salix 'Coire Kander'

Salix 'Coire Kander' is an beautiful dwarf willow that we were given, and which has done very well in the garden. It makes a neat shrub, not spreading laterally, with small, softly hairy leaves, and silvery catkins in spring. It was found in Coire Kander in the southern Cairngorm mountains in Scotland, and is probably a hybrid, perhaps of Salix lanata and some as yet unidentified species. It has the collection reference CK 8/95.

Lovely dwarf willow with softly hairy grey-green leaves and silvery catkins.
