Willow, Weeping Pussy


Description: This beautiful tree has a strong weeping habit that will have branches dropping all the way to the ground. It is sure to be the highlight of your landscape. In late winter and early spring, this pussy willow tree is decked out with extra-large, silver-gray catkins which turn bright yellow and can last for nearly a month. This compact ornamental grows 4-5′ high, an excellent size for accenting a small garden, front yard or patio area. Cut back to keep desired shape and size, it tolerates trimming well
