Title: Chinese Pussy Willow Project
Post by: jlushious on August 07, 2014, 09:36 PM
I got this little pussy willow as a volunteer in a big grow box that I got my old lawn mower boxwood in (see old boxwood thread for lawn mower reference). I pulled it out and gave it its own pot last summer. It has been growing like crazy this year and I had to prune it back pretty hard. It's been growing pretty naturally into this cascade style. I think it has lots of potential once I repot next spring and let it thicken up.

I don't see a lot of these pussy willows being used for bonsai, but I think this one will lend itself to cascade well.

First pic is from last summer after getting its own pot. Second was this afternoon.

you are right, we don't see these every day. Will love to follow its progress.
