Have you ever seen a Pussy Willow Tree ?
I've always thought they were bushes.
"Live and learn" as they say .
This is a Weeping Pussy willow.
I just had to bring a few inside...
Pussy willow trees are native to the eastern U.S. and Canada
and usually found around wetlands..
The furry buds are known as "catkins".
There are male and female catkins..
I'm not sure how one tells the difference but the males appear late
in their season so these could be males.
They are easy to propagate.
You can just insert a cut branch in to moist soil or
place it in water to root and then plant it.
Leave several nodes above the ground.
They are known to be quite invasive and enjoy a moist habitat.
Have a wonderful weekend.
