Description

The Pink Pussy Willow, Salix discolor rosea, is a form of Pussy Willow with pale pink catkins. The Pussy Willow flowers on the last year’s growth, so prune right after the flowers have faded. For early bloom, cut branches of pussy willows, bring them inside and set in a water filled vase in a sunny window any time after the middle of January. The catkins will develop and make a nice display for a considerable time.

Pussy willows grow well in almost any soil, but it is a good idea to supplement it with peat moss, leaf mold, or compost. They require full sun to thrive, but will survive in the shade as well. As with most willows, they do best when given lots of water.
