Seasonal Blooms: Pussy Willow

March 8, 2013

Another true sign that spring has arrived, when you start seeing pussy willow branches. The soft to the touch, furry cattails are gray like in color. Absolutely adorable! They derive from a tree/shrub that arrive in late February and throughout March, April and May. They’re available in various lengths.

They are extremely versatile. They can be clustered all together to create a large stunning focal piece. Or just a few branches simply tucked into your centerpiece, here and there, for a subtle touches. The little branches add texture to any arrangement. They not only can be used for large statements, but can be scaled down for the detail shots. Add life and depth by encasing a bridal bouquet with “loops” of willow. Don’t forget the groom with a single sprig of the cattails! Create a ring bearer pillow with just pillow willow wrapped around itself!

Once you see these little babies in person, you’ll fall in love, just as we have!
