Salix sacchalinensis 'Sekka'

13th March 2011

A fasciated shrub from Japan. The stems are flattened and twisted in an unpredictable way and it can become an unpredictable shape, though given enough time it will average itself out into a very large blob (ten feet). The stems are popular with flower arrangers, but once it really gets going you won't be able to give it away fast enough (and for some reason they always want the good bits, and you get left with the dull sticks).
