More info about our plant sizes.

Of Japanese origin this pussy willow was named for the volcano, Mt. Asama; so rewarding for how easy it is to grow. Buds emerge deep burgundy with a silver penumbra, and then the flowers become soft pinkish-red and 2–3 inches in length! Appreciated by florists for the catkin and the red stem; make your own breathtaking arrangement with tall stems to fill a crystal, silver, or black vase! It is a large shrub, 12-15', but with pruning can remain smaller.

Minimum temperature: -10° F
