The easy to grow Water Willow plant adds an airy touch to the garden. Flowing off of each light green stem are wispy, medium green leaves that display a distinctive long white vein running down their center offering a soft contrasting color scheme and a wispy feel when the slightest breeze lifts their slender branches to your garden.
Adding a graceful touch to these breezy plants are the beautiful white flowers that rest atop the long willowy stems. Each flower is graced with light lavender to deep purple and sometimes almost black spots, which are scattered on the tips of each petal, adding, even more, beauty to this perennial. Because the flowers continuously bloom throughout the summer months until early fall, this plant not only offers long lasting beauty it also attracts butterflies and humming birds to the garden.
An easy to care for plant, the Water Willow has a rhizomatous root system that allows it to easily multiply without the need of the gardener's consistent attention. Situated amongst dense plants, this perennial can give a more spacious feel to the garden.
