Versatile Ornamental Tree

Bring Home an Early Spring

Nothing will add a more dramatic impact to your landscape than the Weeping Pussy Willow. This ornamental tree is compact enough to be planted almost anywhere and will be the focal point of your yard. It can be pruned to create the size and shape that you desire for your particular space.

Beautiful in Cut Arrangements

Each year, in late winter or early spring, you will be greeted with soft-white catkins. Clip a few blooming branches and bring them inside where they can be displayed on their own or added to other floral arrangements.

If you're anxious for the feel of an early spring - Cut a few branches from your Weeping Pussy Willow while it's still budding. When you place them in water near a sunny window, they will bloom before your eyes while everything outdoors is still sleeping. Your Willow will bloom for up to 4-weeks each year; when the blooms have faded its branches will be covered with lovely green leaves, still adding a dramatic touch to your landscape.

Easy to Maintain

Plant your Weeping Pussy Willow in early spring or fall for best results. It loves moist, almost soggy soil, making it the perfect choice for planting near your spring or pond and it has a deep spreading root system that makes it ideal for hillside planting and erosion control.

You can plant your Weeping Pussy Willow in dryer soil conditions too; just keep the soil moistened and flood once a week during the hot weather, for a vibrant and healthy tree. The growth of your Weeping Pussy Willow is considered moderate to fast which is just a little slower than the standard variety because of the grafting required to create this dramatic tree but well worth a little extra time.

  • Low Maintenance
  • Moderate to Fast Growth
  • Beautiful for Cut Arrangements
  • Dynamic Visual Appeal

Absolutely love it!
I planted my weeping willow at the beginning of Spring (1month ago) and it has already began to grow new leaves and branches. I'm extremely pleased with my purchase and I'm looking forward to the seasons and years to come.

beautiful tree
The tree came by mail and was in perfect condition. I planted it right away and it has been growing ever since. It is about 6 feet tall and full of weeping branches about 3 ft long. I see lots of buds on all the branches. It's a beautiful ornamental tree, can't wait to see the pussy willows grow.
I definitely would Recommend this tree.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Weeping Pussy Willow



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Weeping Pussy Willow.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Weeping Pussy Willow gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Weeping Pussy Willow again after the transplant is complete.

Water absorption, beauty, not too big.
Ann B on Apr 13, 2016
I have seen these, and they are truly soft, fuzzy, and lovely! They remind me of the softest kitten or rabbit fur. And the best thing is, they return every spring! How wonderful!!

will it survive in Hernando, FL 34442?
Manny G on Feb 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I purchased x2. One on each side of my walkway step to the front door. Both looked like they would make it in the beginning. 6 months down the road only one was thriving.,I didn't give up and followed instructions for feeding as fast-growing-trees instructed me and although not Florida, we have our share of extremes in Virginia. It looks like we might have turned a corner, and I will have both come to bloom.
Can't wait!
Even when not blooming, I get comments on how unique the branches are.
can this weeping pussywillow be planted in a container?
p w on Mar 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it can be planted in a container.
