Japanese Pussy Willow. I would refer to this plant as "Giant Pussy Willow" because it is so much more robust than the more familiar S. caprea. The stems are a shiny burgundy with bright red flower buds and the male catkins are incredible, up to 3" long. The ultimate size may be 15-20' with an equal spread, so give it plenty of room. I really think that there would be a good cut-flower market for this plant.
