Description from Holly Hill Farms

These are grown in quart containers. Grow in average, medium to wet, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Prefers moist soils in full sun. Consider cutting back plant hard every 3-4 years to promote new, vigorous growth. Black pussywillow is a mounded, multi-stemmed shrub typically growing 6-10′ tall. Dioecious. Attractive black male and female flowering catkins bloom in March-April before the foliage unfolds. Plumper and showier male catkins (1.5″ long) are deep purplish-black with contrasting red anthers which gradually turn yellow with pollen. Attractive purplish-black stems in winter. Ovate, finely toothed leaves (to 4″ long) are dark green above and silver green below. Zones 5 to 7.
