The post & video I did about the pruning of a Weeping Pussy Willow has been surprisingly popular, to myself anyway, so I decided it was time to share everything I know about caring for this small weeping tree.

My client up in the San Francisco Bay Area ordered the 1 you see in the video from Wayside Gardens about 15 years ago which I planted & then maintained. It’s not a plant commonly sold in those parts so I was very curious to see how it would do.

Although there were quite a few Pussy Willows growing around the pond on my childhood farm in New England, I didn’t even know there was a weeping variety. Many times gardening is experimentation and I love weeping plants so I said “why not give it a go” – you know what I mean?

In short, the Weeping Pussy Willow tree of which I speak has been lovingly nicknamed “Cousin Itt” & is doing just fine! It has grown in width more than in height and turns into a massively foliated blob if not pruned a few times a year in our temperate coastal California climate. These plants are tough & are actually pretty easy to maintain. And yes, when now left unpruned, Itt turns into the leafy version of the amusing character from the Addams Family.
