The Weeping Pussy Willow Delivers an Early Spring

Why Weeping Pussy Willows?

Nothing will add a more dramatic impact to your landscape than the Weeping Pussy Willow. For starters, this ornamental tree is compact enough to be planted almost anywhere and will be the focal point of your yard. And it's versatile since it can be pruned to create the size and shape that you desire for your particular space.

Even better? It's 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.

And if you're anxious for 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 four weeks each year; and when the blooms have faded its branches will be covered with lovely green leaves, still adding a dramatic touch to your landscape.

Plus, it couldn't be easier to grow. 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.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

It's nearly impossible to find a Weeping Pussy Willow this healthy and robust from your local garden center or big-box nursery.

In fact, most big-box retailers sell their plants bare-root, giving you a lower chance of long-term success in your own garden.

But when you order from Fast Growing Trees, we ensure that your Pussy Willow is planted, grown, and meticulously nurtured from day one. We take the time to ensure your plant is well-rooted in nutrient-rich soil and delivered in the same pot it's grown in.

    Be the envy of the neighborhood...order your Weeping Pussy Willow today!

    Planting & Care

    1. Planting: Creek beds or pond-accenting spots are favored but as long as you irrigate properly and ensure the proper sun exposure, your willow can thrive anywhere.

    Dig a hole three times the width and just as deep as the root ball of your tree. Then remove any debris like rocks, grass or soil clumps from the hole and use a shovel or a pitchfork to loosen the soil around the sides of the hole. Position your tree and make sure that the root collar (the area where the roots meet the trunk of the tree) is level with the surrounding soil. Next, gently backfill the soil and tamp it down as you go. After this process is complete, give your tree a long drink of water until the soil becomes evenly moist.

    Finally, spread a layer of mulch that’s about three inches thick around the base of your tree.

    2. Watering: Your Willow will need a deep watering roughly 2 to 3 times weekly (depending on the weather) to keep the soil consistently moist. Mulching really helps with retaining soil moisture so you will not have to monitor as often.

    A good method is to leave your garden hose next to the base of the tree on a slow trickle for about 10 minutes once weekly.

    3. Fertilizing: Feed once yearly in the fall season, after it has become established (about 2 years after planting). Use an all-purpose fertilizer.

    4. Pruning: Prune back new shoots right to the main trunk and remove some of the older main branches in spring. Pruning isn't necessary, but you'll get a neater, cleaner form by removing these older branches and shoots.

    Weeping ***** Willow Purchase

    The tree is high quality and flowering even with some wintery weather in the mountains of Virginia. Very pleased with the shape of the tree at this early stage of development. Highly recommended product.

    Little “Cousin It”

    Our Weeping ***** Willow showed up within days of ordering and seemed to be in great condition. Our little tree has already been named “Cousin It” for when it grows into its full weeping form.
