This is a short-lived species in the East or Midwestern US because a canker disease kills it off when around 30 years old. I used to have a photo of some large specimens in a group in St Charles, Illinois that were mostly dead. People easily propagate it by stem cutting put in a water bottle. It is messy like other willow trees. The species comes from China.
