Salix purpurea or Purple Osier is a deciduous, bushy shrub that has great autumn colour. The stems go from a yellow colour in the spring to an attractive reddish-purple tinged colour in the autumn. In the spring, March, it carries silvery catkins with purple anthers. Salix purpurea will do well in any moist soil, but particularly thrives in sandy soil. Like the other willows it requires full sun and is a hardy plant, but unlike the other willows it can grow in chalky ground. It can tolerate exposed windy areas including coastal.
