Scan the pages of high end catalogs selling fashionable furnishings and you'll see vases, jars, buckets and urns of curly willow. These sculptural branches are quick to snip, easy to arrange and last indefinitely. Display a generous bunch in a stylish container, slip individual stems into flower arrangements to add height, and use anywhere for wild, twisted, organic form. Plant this spring and your willow to grow about 3-5 feet per year as it fills out sideways. Soon you'll have plenty of branches to cut and share, plus a decorative landscape addition for shade.
