Iceberg Alley™, a native plant discovered by the Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador Botanical Garden. Powdery, silver foliage of this small shrub is a great addition to the landscape, adding texture and contrast when combined with other shrubs. Forming a rounded shrub and does not overtake the landscape, reaching a height and spread of about 5′ (a bit shorter in very cold areas and a bit taller in warmer zones). It blooms in spring with silver catkins, red stamens and nectar for pollinators. Tolerant of moist soils and a good choice for rain gardens. Grows best in full sun and tolerates pruning beautifully. Consider cutting the stems in early spring for the decorative catkins.
Adaptable to most moist, or wet soils. Fertilize in spring and prune after flowering.
