How do you add a sense of movement to the garden? Ornamental grasses usually take on this role, but sometimes there's a need for something larger. The 'Rosemary Leafed Willow' , fits the bill perfectly with its two toned narrow leaves that flicker in the slightest breeze. This fine textured shrub or small tree is simply poetry in motion, and makes an excellent screen or backdrop. It is a recipient of the coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit
