What is Blooming Now?

Not many things are blooming this early, but I would like to introduce you to the Salix caprea.  This plant is also know as the weeping pussy willow.  Picking branches loaded with the little catkins was a favorite pasttime of mine when I was small. 

There are both male and female Pussy Willow trees.  The male catkins are larger and more fluffy.  This weeping tree is perfect for a location where you need a smaller tree.  It’s mature height of 8-10′  makes it great for a focal point or patio tree.
