Native to parts of Europe including the United Kingdom, Salix myrsinifolia is grown primarily for its shining, ebony coloured, bare stems which are visible throughout the winter.
Lovely dark stem colours, especially when planted in groups near brightly coloured winter stemmed Salix such as Salix alba 'Golden Ness'.
The leaves are dark green and in spring, attractive catkins with golden anthers appear on the branches. The winter stems are especially ornamental and colourful if this plant is pruned back hard annually in spring (just after the catkins fall) to encourage vigorous new shoots
