Flowering Branches – The Pussywillow

The appearance of furry pussywillow branches is one of the first enduring signs of spring. These delightful decorative branches make a perfect addition to a floral display or can be used all by themselves in a tall vase or even to create a spring wreath for your front door. Placing them in a vase without water will allow them to dry so that you can enjoy them in arrangements long after they are out of season.

Native to the wetlands of Canada and the Eastern US, these familiar and popular willows have graceful, flexible branches. Pussy willows quickly grow from 20 to 35 feet. Typically they will add 4 to 6 feet to their height every year so they are perfect if you are looking for something to quickly add height and interest to your garden. Reaching maturity after about 5 years, they have a lifespan of just around 35 years.
