Design Ideas: An exceptional form to create focal points and emphasize other positions in the garden. Grow adjacent to water gardens and stream beds to suggest the weeping willow on a much smaller scale. Grow in a children's garden to create private space beneath. Exceptionally romantic cottage garden accent as center point for more colorful planting.

Prefers humus-rich, evenly moist soils; adapts well to constantly wet sites. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, water as needed to maintain wet or moist soil. Apply a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune only as needed to shape.

History

This species is not only attractive in form but it offers florist quality pussy willow cuttings in spring.
