Iceberg Alley Sageleaf Willow
Salix candida 'Jefberg'
Iceberg Alley is an exciting native plant discovered by the Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador Botanical Garden. The powdery, silver foliage of this small shrub will be a great addition to the landscape, adding texture and contrast when combined with other colorful shrubs. It blooms in spring with a very pretty silver catkin with red stamens that can be cut for early spring decoration. As with most Salix, it can tolerate moist soils. Grows best in full sun sites and tolerates pruning beautifully. Consider cutting the stems in early spring for the decorative catkins.
