Iceberg Alley™ Sageleaf Willow

Salix candida 'Jefberg'

First Editions® is excited to introduce Iceberg Alley™, a 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 forms a rounded shrub and does not overtake the landscape, reaching a height and spread of about 5’ (a bit shorter in very cold areas of North America and a bit taller in warmer zones). It blooms in spring with a very pretty silver catkin with red stamens. 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.
