Giant French Pussywillow


Salix caprea. A very special variety that blooms extra early (a full month before standard florist pussywillow) with very large catkins. The plant will grow into a 10′ shrub if allowed to grow to full size. But, by harvesting the ornamental stems, it can be kept much smaller. Can be coppiced (cut close to the ground) in winter and will send up long straight stems in summer for cutting the following spring. Easy to grow even in wet sites and provides useful screening.
