What type of willow?

Can you give me any information on what type of willow this tree is? Type, mature size, etc., When I purchased it a year ago, it was about 6 feet high. It has at least doubled in height and trunk size. I’m concerned at this rate, it will outgrow it’s space, which is in a raised flower bed along a fence line.
Thank you

It appears to be a standard White Willow. These trees will get absolutely massive! It will most definitely outgrow a confined space. If this is close to your house, then these roots will become highly invasive and destroy any water lines, sewage, or septics tanks, and anything else underground.

I would NOT recommend leaving it in this space. If you choose a willow, you will need to find a dwarf, or even smaller for a confined space. Even dwarves get pretty large.
