A favorite. A dwarf willow for the miniature garden with a growth rate of about 3" per year - although it has been growing a lot slower for us here in Seattle, Wa.
Discovered in Scotland, Boyd's Willow grows really slowly to about 12 inches tall and it a hardy little gem for just about any miniature garden scene. Round, furry, blue-gray leaves are perched on little gnarled branches. Needs sharp, well draining soil (add sand or extra perlite.)
Note: Plants are deciduous and are just starting to flush-out for spring and then they will drop their leaves in the fall.
