Looks like an indoor plant to me. The flowers don't look like willow, certainly.
Ordered some plants via a newspaper offer on 2 April. They arrived in good condition on Wednesday 16 April.

If you are really worried you can ask the Council Tree Officer to take a look. It is their job to advise especially if the tree has a TPO.
