Pussy Willow
Golden Weeping Willow

Pussy Willow is a large shrub or small tree that produces catkins that are soft, silky, and silvery before leaves appear in the spring. This native willow prefers moist to wet soil.

Pussy Willow makes a beautiful accent tree, and its bright branches can be used for floral arrangements or basket making.

All willow are important to native pollinators each spring as they have higher amounts of pollen and nectar early each growing season when other food sources are scarce.

The Golden Weeping Willow is a cultivar with bright yellow twigs and an attractive weeping shape. It is one of the most popular willows, with high ornamental value.

The Golden Weeping Willow has glossy green foliage during the spring and summer months, then the leaves turn a golden-yellow in the fall. The brown bark is furrowed and the overhanging branches keep their yellow tone, so they also have significant winter interest.
