Only a single branch is visible in this design, beautifully crafted in color to highlight the textural qualities of the tree’s bark, its emerging springtime buds and the delicate coloration of its red catkins. These drooping, cylinder-shaped flower clusters are designed for cross-pollination. Male flowers are red while female flowers are yellow, much larger, and grow on separate trees.
