I received this as a cutting 3 yrs. ago. The elderly lady who gave me the cutting called it curly willow. I haven't been able to find any info or pics. I would appreciate any help in adding to it's 'proper' name. Thanks!

busybee, if it keeps growing well, I will take cuttings later this season to share with you. It's about 4' tall now and has branched out just this year.

Redrose, I rooted it in water, then potted it in a 3 gal. pot, where it lived for the first yr. because I didn't have a spot picked out for it at the time. The roots are white and very brittle, so, it you root in water, be very careful when planting. I suppose it would root just as well in the ground providing you kept it very well watered.
