Aptly named, this topnotch undemanding shrub quickly composes an upright, multistemmed silvery frame well-suited for hedging or screening. The dapper deciduous leaves—long, slender and alternate—manifest tiny bronze dots, which reflect sunlight, and create a splendid sparkle, while small cream-colored flowers tucked into leaf axils exude a sweet fragrance.
Originating in England as a chance hybrid seedling first identified by celebrated British plantsman Roy Lancaster, the ever-acquiescent ‘Quicksilver’ dresses the garden with luminous accents and withstands wind, drought and most soils.
