What is Shimanto rose-gold pussy willow

Shimanto rose-gold pussy willow (Scientific name: gracilistyla cv. Shimanto) is a deciduous shrub in the willow family Salicaceae, which is native to Japan. It is a small variety of " V(nekoyanagi)". It grows wild on the banks of the Shimanto River and produces silvery-white flower ears that look like a cat's tail in early spring. It is a dioecious strain. The leaves are bright green on the front and hairy on the back, so they look grayish-white. Male plants produce only male flowers and female plants produce only female flowers. Male flowers produce many long, thread-like stamens with orange anthers, and when anthers open, yellow pollen is emitted. The female flowers are short and thread-like with yellow stamens. The male flowers are larger than the female flowers.
