It becomes clothed with masses of small, yellowish-brown catkins in early spring and displays fantastic, rough, peeling white bark that becomes marked with black, rugged cracks as it gets older. The long, slender, pendent branches often reach the ground, creating a fabulous, mop-like, dome shape with no central leader and foliage clustered at the top of the trunk.
It makes a perfect specimen tree for the middle of a lawn and can be used in pairs to draw attention to commercial entrances. Under-plant with spring bulbs for maximum impact.
