I purchased the Weeping Pussy Willow Tree in 2012. It came looking like a long stick. It now looks wonderful, full and catkins covering the tree.

Can not be more satisfied with this purchase. Great price at 50% off, large tree with nice hanging branches. Packing was exceptional for protection of branches of roots. Received my order within a week of placing the order. Thanks Spring Hill for such a great shopping experience and looking forward to many years of enjoyment from this health tree.

A traditional favorite, the Weeping Pussy Willow Tree enhances classic, rustic, or contemporary landscapes. These rare Salix caprea Pendula develop long arching cascades that, in late winter and early spring, bud distinctive silver-gray perennial flowers, called catkins, which turn bright yellow. Dry catkins from this ornamental weeping tree for striking floral arrangements.

Plant an ornamental Weeping Pussy Willow Tree for a romantic and long-living garden or yard centerpiece. These compact willow trees (Salix caprea Pendula) have strong weeping habits with high-arching branches that seem to reach for the ground. A compact ornamental weeping tree, this unique and hard-to-find variety only attains about 5 feet in height, making it an excellent accent choice for small gardens or patio areas. In late winter, perennial flowers in the form of catkins, or cylindrical, petal-less blooms, appear on the branches, providing year-round interest.
