Lovely Spritz , good pic. I have a friend who has such a large shrub that they cut and sell the branches to a florist for decorations etc.

Mine is SOOO small - only about a metre tall - so I was really pleased and a bit surprised to find catkins on it. I'd rather not prune bits off for the florist, thanks.

mine is a nice size now and looks lovely when all the catkins are out, will post a photo when they are all out i've had it a long time must be 15 years at least so its not fast growing, bought it because my son was fascinated with it so its Kris' tree! He's now 27!!!!
