Black Cat® Pussywillow

Black Cat® Pussywillow

Salix chaenomeloides Black Cat®

The cat came back! This fabulously unique pussywillow disappeared for a few years as we worked out some quirks that made its extra large, deep black catkins sometimes go silver – but we’ve straightened all that out and are delighted to bring Black Cat® pussywillow back to the garden. This is a very large plant, perfect for planting as a screen or barrier. It tolerates wet soil and is very hardy. Each spring brings hundreds of fuzzy catkins that start out bright pink and silver, soon maturing to deep black.
