Plant of the Day

Tuesday 22 January 2019

The young purple stems of Salix irrorata (blue-stem willow) develop a striking white bloom in winter with grey catkins with red anthers in early spring. Just before bud burst these stems will be cut back to the main stem (leg) to allow new shoots to develop in the coming season to provide the best display for next winter, this pruning process is known as stooling.
