Salix gracilistyla 'Melanostachys'

Deciduous. Spring flowering. Grown primarily for the mass of black catkins, with red anthers burst forth unexpectedly from the bare branches in early spring, but the coloured stems also give interest during winter. A better catking and stem display is achieved on the younger growth, so prune regularly. Best in a sunny position in a moisture retentive soil. 3 x 3m (10' x 10'), if not pruned
