  • yes I LOVE them. But DO NOT PLANT near ANY water pipes, or sewage pipes that are underground. They LOVE water & will totally destroy any water pipes underground. There roots search for water, so becareful when planting one in your yard.

  • I love pussy willows. We used to have a lovely planting of them on the low part of our lot, where water would collect in heavy rain. The plants got mowed down when they were overrun with weeds, I need to get more.

  • I love them and haven't seen any since I was a girl.
    They are so adorable!
    In fact, I don't think my daughters have ever seen any - that is so sad. :(
