Description

An outstanding, deciduous shrub with narrow, willow-like silvery leaves (especially when young) and highly scented, small pale creamy-yellow flowers in late spring and early summer.

Care Tips

If required cut back after flowering and mulch annually. This can be pollarded (the crown pruned) to keep compact for smaller gardens.
