Native to Japan, China and Korea the Giant Pussy Willow is ornamental and grown for its large dusty pink catkins which bloom in late winter and early spring. This willow grows quite large, sometimes more than 15 feet tall and 15 feet wide. However, in order to have a steady supply of branches which create these catkins it is best to cut the plant back to 1 or 2 feet above the ground every 2 to 3 years. Keeping the plant at a more reasonable 6 to 8 feet. Great for use in winter arranagements.
