Plant type

Salix discolor

Pussy willow grows as a large shrub or small multi-stemmed tree, to about 15-20 ft. Lovely tender silky grey flower buds (or catkins) emerge in the very early spring. Branches can also be brought inside and forced over the winter. Can be cut back in the spring to create a smaller or denser plant. Native.

Willows are extremely hardy and adaptable to wet soils. Shrub species make a great deer-resilient deciduous hedge or buffer. Willows are an important early-pollen source for native pollinators!
