    Default Can anyone help identify?

    Hello All,

    I bought my wife a nice arrangement of lilies and other flowers a few weeks ago. As part of the arrangement there were what look like two dead sticks with a slight corkscrew look to them. Well it turns out they were not dead at all, and started to put out roots in the vase, and pop leaves as well. I have no idea what type of plant these are and was hoping some one could provide some guidance as to what they might be.

    Any help would be great. Thanks!

    I couldn't say, but it does look tropical to me.

    It looks to me like corkscrew willow; and the rooting in water that easily is fairly diagnostic for willow

    Thank you! After seeing some pictures of others I agree with you. Definitely looks like a corkscrew willow.
