Two decorative items from my Mother's Day bouquet have rooted while in water! I am excited to have remembrance from this bouquet. One is a Golddust Plant. Is the second a Corkscrew Willow by chance?

It looks like a corkscrew willow - and that's exactly how I got mine. Plant it outside in a spot with lots of sun and LOTS of room. Mine eventually came down when part of it fell on our roof!

The twisted willow is a beautiful tree...but be careful if you only have a small garden.
All willows will seek out water and if they find a way into a water/sewer pipe can over time block it.

Recommended planting distance from buildings for Willow...18m. See...

They grow very large.

Ut, oh! So there are 7 branches which equals 7 trees! Its no wonder they keep cutying them to be used as decoration. Maybe I'll grow them for cut /dried decoration and keep then small? Or give them back to my DD? Rolling on the floor laughing
