Botanical name: Salix

Genus: Pastures

Plant family: Willow family (bot. Salicaceae)

Occurrence: Northern hemisphere

The pussy willow, as the name suggests, belongs to the genus of willow (bot. Salix) from the willow family (bot. Salicaceae). There are around 450 species of willow. Their range extends over all parts of the northern temperate zone to the Arctic. Willows are dioecious and separate sexes (diocesan), which means that either only female or exclusively male flowers are formed on a tree. The flowers of both sexes stand together in an upright catkin inflorescence, so both the female and the male catkins appear furry when young. The name kitten goes back to the noticeably soft exterior, which is comparable to soft cat fur. Both the male and the female kittens have two nectar glands at the base of each individual flower, which bees and other nectar-collecting insects like to visit.

Care tips for pussy willows
