Hybrid willows?

Got 30 hybrid willows from Burgess seed & plant company in bloomington IL

From what I read on these my little 1ft. stalks should reach over 10ft.+ high in the first year? anyone have experience with these or some photos of actual growth? Im trying to create a super fast screen between the neighbors and my house. They are far to nosy and hopefully this will put an end to it.

if anyone wants to check these out go to www.eburgess.com I beleive they are still on the front main homepage on their site.

I have and have used hybrid willows, but they are not dense plants. They do grow extremely quickly and tall, and you can make many more from a simple cutting dropped into a 5 gallon bucket of water. They have latent buds all along their stems, so roots can pop out almost anywhere. The pom-pom they create in late winter, early spring is a great ornamental feature and depending on which hybrids you received, they have some very interesting stem growing habits.
