Description:  A very fast growing pussy willow with red bark and a white chalk-like look to the branches. This willow is drought tolerant and hardy when established.  It prefers average to wet soil; and will even tolerate some standing water.

Ornamental Features: The catkins start blooming in early February, heralding the arrival of Spring.  Pruning at this time will put a smile on your face when you set your catkin-loaded cuttings in vases around your house.

Landscape Attributes:  The Marquette Pussy Willow will grow to 19ft x 15ft at maturity. Zone hardy for Calgary and area.

Fun Fact:  The bark from willows can be used in remedies, such as tea, for headaches and hangovers.
Fun Fact:  Willow is a source of salicin, which is broken down into salicylic acid – the main component of aspirin.

Did you know?: A great pussy willow bouquet will last for months (up to a year) in a vase – just don’t put them in water! If you are interested in a bouquet of pussy willow, contact the Garden Centre.  Bouquets are bunches of 10 stems in 2-3’ lengths or 4-6’ lengths.
