Late fall color: buds and stems for the holidays

Late fall color in the field is beginning on curly willow and 'white' willow stems, both turning shades of red, orange and yellow with leaf drop. Bright red buds of some pussy willow varieties are the perfect holiday red for December arrangements. Red willow buds and stems are now available through the fall and winter for sale.
