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.
Adaptable to most moist, or wet soils. Fertilize in spring and prune after flowering.
