A dwarf, weeping tree with beautiful velvety soft 'pussies' that erupt into bright yellow as they bloom. These are followed by dark green leaves with silvery-grey-green undersides. In mid- to late spring, the bare branches are covered in golden male catkins, which superb in cut-flower arrangements. An ideal miniature tree for small garden patio planters, that will grow no taller than it's current size but will thicken right out year on year to provide an ever better show. TWO trees, each supplied as top quality, miniature standard plants with a grafted bushy head, overall height around 50-60cms (two feet) tall. Before the male catkins come into full flower they are covered in fine, greyish fur, leading to a fancied likeness to tiny cats, also known as pussies, hence the common name Pussy Willow. The catkins appear long before the leaves, and are one of the earliest signs of spring.
