Salix purpurea is a shrub willow commonly known as Purple Osier. It has a spreading growth habit, with arching purple shoots which carry narrow, oblong leaves in blue-green. The bare, early spring shoots bear slender, silver catkins. Salix purpurea will tolerate water logged sites but does prefer full sun. The twigs of this variety are extremely supple, making them a popular choice for basket making.
