(Pussywillow) Oh, the sights of spring! Introducing Pussywillow Black Cat™ , great for cutting gardens and landscape borders or specimens. Standing 10-12 foot tall, Pussywillow Black Cat™ has long dark branches adorned with extra large, deep black catkins. Pussywillow bloom on old growth so we recommend pruning back after flowering to produce long stems the following spring. Black Cat™ is an easy to grow variety and prefers to be planted in full sun locations and is adaptable in moist or wet locations. A deer resistant flowering shrub brought to you by Proven Winners® ColorChoice® .
