Pussy Willow ‘French’
French Pussy Willow is highlighted by its soft ‘flowers’ on the ends of the branches in early spring before its leaves emerge.
They start out looking like large, tan/white fuzzy, buds which transition to something like little yellow bottle brushes.
It a fast grower, and left unpruned it can reach between 12-25 feet tall and 12-15 feet wide.
It likes to be planted in full sun or part shade, and will thrive in average to wet soils. It is best to keep any willow away water and sewer lines.
