{Pussy Willow from Cuttings}

We did have a Weeping Pussy Willow three years ago but we lost it when our creek got flooded. But last year while shopping at +Whole Foods Market in Atlanta, we did buy a bouquet of Pussy Willows with the intent to grow them from these cuttings. Even though they're not the Weeping variety that we lost, but it worked and look:
Here it is, a young Pussy Willow Shrub from Cuttings!
Nicely close to the creek in its natural habitat where they thrive best.
Near our first bridge across the creek into our wood garden.
Mid March they did give us so much joy and they look beautiful!
No doubt these tiny shrubs will bigger over time and let me cut again a bouquet for in a vase.
There is even a spider living in the top part of this little shrub!
Spiders seem to prefer them as this one too shows some cob web threads.
Both of us grew up with plenty of Pussy Willows in the area where we grew up so we're quite pleased with these five new shrubs!
Do you have a Pussy Willow in your garden?

      So far I've never seen them in our region but I guess they love to grow near the creek.

  2. Dearest Mariette,
    You are such a nature lover that even cuttings thrive at your hands. That is one beautiful young plant that has a lot of promises. Thanks for taking such good care f nature. You seem to understand the true beauty of nature.

      We've done that in our youth, growing them from cuttings and it works rather easy so this went really perfect. We treasure them and they will make grate bouquets in the future for winter time.
      Hugs,

  3. Dearest Mariette,

    How sweet the little pussy willow tree is and you did well to grow it from a cutting.
    I don't have one growing but when I was a little girl having one at my family home - always loved them and remember also singing the song about the pussy willow tree.
    Have a wonderful weekend
    hugs

      Yes, we both are quite happy for having this sweet Pussy Willow shrub back into our lives. We grew up in an area where there were plenty.
      Happy weekend to you!

  4. Hello sweet Mariette!
    I love Pussy Willow, it's a delicate shrub that would fit into any garden.
    It's great as foliage in a floral display too.
    I must put one on my list for planting later in the year.
    You did so well growing yours from cuttings Mariette.
    Hugs

      So far we love it and look forward for having an early spring bouquet cut from these shrubs.
      True, the foliage makes also a great filler!
      Sending you hugs and wishing you a lovely weekend.

  5. You managed to get some very pretty pictures of them. A friend gave us grapevine cuttings from his plants in Jordan but I don't think they are going to leaf. He has a very green thumb and I'm afraid our environment is just too harsh. Best wishes, Tammy

    1. Dearest Tammy,
      Thank you, we both loved the closeups of this lovely shrub doing its very best in the first spring. It is hard in your harsh environment to grow anything. We're lucky for having a creek, so the natural habitat for Pussy Willows exists.
      Hugs and blessings,
      Mariette

  6. Ne ho visto una versione più piccola dalle mie parti, non so però se si tratta della stessa pianta. Mi piace il suo colore delicato, quasi argenteo alla luce del sole. Nelle fiorerie fanno delle composizioni stupende insieme ad altri fiori, come le rose. Un abbraccio. Paola

    1. Cara Paola,
      Abbastanza sicuro che fosse della stessa varietà, come ci sono molti diversi, ma io li amo tutti!
      Finora abbiamo goduto la sua bellezza due volte; anno scorso in un vaso come un bouquet e ora la prole.
      Baci e buona fine settimana!

  8. Hello Mariette, We used to look for pussy willows growing as one of the signs of early spring. You are right that they grow near water, and any sort of water drew us like a magnet, especially with its abundant supplies of tadpoles and so forth.

      Oh, fond childhood memories of Pussy Willows and Tadpoles that we used to collect inside big canning jars. We're very pleased with these five young shrubs!

  9. 'Wundervoll, liebe Mariette! Die Weidenkätzchen, die obenherum zartrosa sind, mag ich am allerliebsten. :-) Aber auch die blühenden sind sehr schön. Meine Drachenweide blüht auch gerade, der Duft ist so süß, wundervoll!
    Danke auch für Deine lieben Zeilen! Ich bin gespannt auf Deinen Veilchenpost und wie schön, daß ich nun weiß, daß Du Gänseblümchen so gern hast! Schade, daß mir vor einer Weile das Gänseblümchen-im-Eis-Foto nicht gelang. Als ich den Fotoapparat aus dem Haus holte, war der Zauber schon wieder weggeschmolzen. ;-) Das wäre ein tolles Bild geworden, so ganz nah dran, wie ich mir das vorgestellt hatte ....

    Viele liebe Grüße und ein schönes Wochenende

      Ja, als het klimaat èn de grond optimaal zijn dan kunnen ze best gaan woekeren. We wachten af, hier valt het mogelijk wel mee omdat het in de zomer zo heet wordt.

  11. Lieve Mariette,

    Wilgen houden namelijk over het algemeen van een vochtige bodem en groeien zeer snel dus zal het geen jaren duren voordat jij de takken met katjes naar binnen kunt halen.
    Ik vind de bloeiende wilgenkatjes in de natuur mooi om te zien met hun wollige jasjes van stuifmeel.
    In ons kikkerlandje de drachtplant van de maand maart waar voor solitaire en sociale bijen een bron van stuifmeel te halen is.
    Kan me nog goed herinneren dat de takken met grijze katjes in menig huiskamer op tafel stonden,ik vond het als kind al niet mooi en nog steeds niet,voor mij mogen alle voorjaarsbloeiers in vaasje behalve die.
    Die zelfde antipathie heb ik met pauwenveren in vaas.
    Smaken verschillen en dat is maar goed ook.

    Fijn weekeind en lieve groet,Ger

    1. Lieve Ger,
      We zullen zien hoe hard ze gaan groeien; of niet... Het is gewoon een gok en ik vind de wilgenkatjes die nog níet open zijn zo mooi in een vaas, einde van de winter. Pauwenveren vallen niet te vergelijken met planten en bloemen en het is zónde om zo'n prachtige dieren er voor af te maken.
      Lieve groetjes en fijne zondag.

  16. Your pussy willow is very pretty! I love watching them because they look like kitty tail :-) (I guess that is why they are named pussy willow!) I especially love the third picture. Looks kind of like they are glowing :-)

    I can imagine how happy Pieter and you were when you realized your cuttings has rooted and will now remind you of your childhood in the Netherlands! I also like to reproduce many plants from cuttings in my garden, the latest being a passiflora which grows very big this year...I will show it in a next blogpost!
    Many hugs to you!

      Sure we both were very pleased with these five new shrubs; one did not start... We have tried to grow passion flower vines here as well, from starters found in the wild, because of their beautiful color and also white ones but no good results.
      It brings so much joy indeed when you manage to grow some your own! Looking forward to your upcoming blogpost.
      Sending you lots of hugs,
      Mariette

  23. Dearest Mariette; Oh, how pretty your Pussy Willow is♡♡♡ And happy for both of you that your effort worked out, Dear friend♪ We call this tree 'neko-yanagi; cat-willow'. For this pretty and cute plant, we have direct translated name. I have fun realizing the equality and differences :-)
    I remember LOVED this tree and sweet flower when young which my neighbor had.

    PS> Yes, my husband is really helpful taking me places and finding birds etc. for me (glasses won't make my bad eyes up for driving level p:) Happy for your husband's appreciation for blogging as well.
    I hope you started a wonderful new week♪

      It is really a very happy exchange of culture, customs and the beauty of plants, shrubs, trees and birds between your fascinating world and ours and we both enjoy it. So happy that your husband likes to be involved as well.
