Got some of this at a garden show years ago along with the corkscrew willow and got them both growing. The willow really took off into huge trees; however, the pussy willow did not survive. Have been since told that this is just some mutated willow, but it sure looks great in arrangements.

It is beautiful in my estimation with such character. It is wide and flat with the blossoms/catkins scattered about.

Here you can see how thin and flat it is with catkins on both sides.
