Sparkler® Willow-Leaf Stachyurus

Stachyurus salicifolius 'MonEmeri'

One of the finest late winter flowering shrubs for temperate climates, its small, gracefully arching form brandishes highly textured bamboo-like, narrow evergreen leaves along its stems. In March, a smothering of pendulous, axillary soft yellow catkins appear, making the entire concoction too breathtaking for words.
