Hello everyone...Bought a house last Fall and can't seem to identify the attached shrub. It grows like crazy and seems to maybe some type of willow family. Were in the Buffalo Ny area and it's super hardy. All replies appreciated. Thanks, Mark in Buffalo

Try looking up Salix integra, 'Hakuro Nishiki'.
Yours looks like mine.

RE: unidentified plant -need help

This is a common name: Dappled Willow (Salix integra). Do a search on Google and go to the Dayton Nurseries page which gives the details as to zone, etc. I love this plant but it gets 9 ft tall. Must be cut back each spring. Let it stay outside for the summer.
