Black Pussy Willow

The black pussy willow is a fast growing shrub that will tolerate areas that are too wet for other trees to grow. It is prized for its black catkins on dark stems that make elegant bouquets.  The dark stems add color to an otherwise drab winter landscape.

Description

According to an old Polish legend, many springtimes ago a mother cat was crying at the bank of the river in which her kittens were drowning. The willows at the river’s edge longed to help her, so they swept their long graceful branches into the waters to rescue the tiny kittens who had fallen into the river while chasing butterflies. The kittens gripped on tightly to their branches and were safely brought to shore. Each springtime since, goes the legend, the willow branches sprout tiny fur-like buds at their tips where the tiny kittens once clung.
