Giant pussy willow, Japanese pussy willow: Salix chaenomeloides It's hard not to feel fond of a plant you can pet. The furry catkins on giant pussy willow grow so large they resemble rabbit's feet. Some even sport "toes." This fun small tree reaches 15 feet to 25 feet tall at a fast rate. Its narrow, dark-green leaves are a lighter tone underneath. Perfect for winter interest in the garden, its buds swell shiny red in late winter. To enjoy it indoors, cut branches as soon as the silky rose-gray catkins emerge.
