Salix chaenomeloides Mt. Aso

Salix gracistyla 'Mt. Aso'

Willow - Japanese Pussy

'Mt. Aso' Japanese Pussy Willow has beautiful bright pink male catkins appearing in March and April.  The fuzzy flowers slowly elongate as they open, ending up almost 2" long by the time the pollen is exposed.  Pussy Willows make great cut branches for forcing in January and February, and 'Mt Aso' is a particularly showy form.  It is named for Japan's largest active volcano.  Cut back the branches to 2' every 2 or 3 years to maintain good catkin production.

PRN Preferred:  The prettiest and most showy of the Pussy Willows.
