Thrives in moist, slightly acidic soils, but is, overall, adaptable. For optimal flower production, cut hard after bloom.
Black Cat® Pussywillow
Extra-large black catkins appear in late winter, giving this plant unique appeal for cut flower sales as well as in the landscape. Larger catkins than Salix gracilistyla ‘Melanostachys’. Formerly known as S. chaenomeloides, which was recently proven to be a naturally-occurring hybrid between Salix gracilistyla and S. caprea.
