A very slow-growing shrub forming tiny, gnarled, upright bushes clothed in grey, felted leaves. An absolute gem. Small and dwarf enough for growing in a trough, for a few years at least, then can be transferred to the garden to mature. Even the naked branches and buds look nice in winter and it will produce little catkins in spring. Can eventually reach about 40" high (1m) but only after many, many years.
Salix 'Boydii' is a rare natural hybrid and has been found only once in a glen in the Cairngorms, Scotland by Dr. Boyd in the 1890s.
