What is a Woolly Willow? Salix lanata, also known as the Woolly Willow, is a subarctic shrub that can be found in the wild near the northern hemisphere.

This hardy plant can thrive in cold climates and wet soil, making it a popular choice for landscaping in colder regions.

The Woolly Willow has characteristic long, woolly hairs on its branches and leaves, which help to protect it from frost and wind exposure.

Its foliage is a light green colour and its flowers are small and white.

The Woolly Willow grows best in moist soil near rivers or ponds, and is typically blooming from May to July.

If you're looking to see this beautiful plant in person, your best chance is to visit a park or nature reserve in the northern hemisphere during late spring or early summer.
