French Pussy Willow

Salix caprea 'Select'

This is another experiment. I'm bringing in bunch of these this year to set up a pussy willow farm. See if I can grow quantities enough to interest the floral trade.

Caprea has larger catkins than the native pussy willow. Select has a more uniform spacing. of the catkins.

Nominally zone 4. We'll see of global warming has warmed enough for these.
