|ALSO KNOWN AS WOLF WILLOW|
A evening shot with soft lighting helps to show off the silver coloured leaves and tiny yellow fragrant flowers. A native shrub that grows in well drained, open sites from the prairie to montane.
Their flowers are very fragrant and can be detected meters away. Silverberries can make good jam. Natives used the bark to make cord, and the berries into decorative beads when dried. To create beads the berries were dried, oiled and polished.

Hi Janice, interesting shrub, I had no idea that it had so many uses. You have presented it very well with excellent lighting and good well exposed colours and details. Very well done and TFS.

Hi Janice, your silver/green plant stands out real well against the blue sky. Well composed too. I too enjoy taking shots of plants, and since I got my digital camera I have really learnt so much about the native plants in NZ. It has been a real learning curve. TFS
