Only early season customers get to see Salix gracilistyla 'Melanostachys' in all its glory when the black catkins emerge. A close look reveals purple red highlights in the black and orange yellow anthers. The mid-green leaves also deserve a closer look when they emerge a little later. Their upper surfaces are shiny and they have downy undersides.

Early to midspring.  10 ft. x 12 ft.

Black Catkin flowers

Sun     Zones 5, 6, 7, 8
