Dwarf Purple Willow (Salix Purpurea 'Nana')
Genus:  Salix

This willow has a lovely matte finish with slender blue-green leaves that are amazingly free of the insect or disease problems so common in other willows.
 

Noteworthy Characteristics: 

This plant has a compact habit and slim, deep purple stems that only make a good thing better. Dwarf Purple willow is very quick growing when young and will reach a height of 5-6' in two or three years if watered and fertilized.

Care: 

Can easily be kept to a height of 3-5 ft with annual winter pruning to the ground.
