Plant of the Month:
The Willow family
Nothing announces spring like the diverse group of the Willow family. In early March, the slender twigs of Weeping Willow glow amber with color as the sap rises in this graceful tree. Soon after, the Willow is one of the first to leaf out. This tree is perfect for wide open spaces near a wet area or pond.
In the shrub area, the fun Pussywillow sends forth its fuzzy, pussy-toe type catkins in early March to announce that spring is not far away. The catkins are wonderful in a vase.
The variegated Hikuro Nishiki Willow sports green, white and pink colored new growth on a fast growing shrub or as a grafted patio tree. A variety of other Willow shrub species can offer interest and important wildlife habitat in an informal landscape or wet area.
