French Pussy Willows, Salix caprea, are large upright growing flowering shrubs or multi-stemmed small flowering trees. The large, fuzzy, silvery Pussy Willow catkins open in late winter or very early spring. A choice garden plant for cutting gardens for winter stems to force the buds to bloom for flower arrangements.
French Pussy Willow flowering shrubs prefers moist soil and is a good plant for wet areas.
According to an old Polish legend, many springtime’s ago a mother cat was crying at the bank of the river in which her kittens were drowning. The willows at the river's edge longed to help her, so they swept their long graceful branches into the waters to rescue the tiny kittens who had fallen into the river while chasing butterflies. The kittens gripped on tightly to their branches and were safely brought to shore. Each springtime since, goes the legend, the willow branches sprout tiny fur-like buds at their tips where the tiny kittens once clung.
