Very lovely ornamental tree or large shrub. The young green shoots turn purple as they age with a striking white bloom. The male catkins have red anthers that turn yellow as they mature. Allow to grow into a mature tree or prune back each spring to control size; pollarding can also look very attractive, creating a sensational focal point in the garden in winter, Plant in full sun or pretty much any sort of decent garden soil that is moist and well drained. Both chalk and clay conditions are well tolerated. Final height: about 5m
