This grower is sure of this plant identification.

A rare compact willow native to sub-arctic parts of Europe and Asia, Salix lanata 'Glanspean' is similar to the more familiar Salix lantana but with more pointed, hairy silvery-grey leaves and a lower habit.

It has golden-yellow catkins in early summer and makes a very ornamental foliage plant, ideal for a low border or a wet area next to a stream or pond. It can also be grown in a large container if required.
