The most remarkable of all willows (Bean); when first discovered, this impressive shrub/tree (6-20') was thought to be a Magnolia so similar are its large (to 10"long) leaves; also 4-11" (!) catkins in spring. SUN/Med-Wet

Wide green leaves with lighter veins look nothing like a willow but more like a magnolia, that is until it blooms with furry catkins. Medium size, upright tree.
