Stopped by a local nursery today and saw three Black Pussy Willows. Nice fat trunks and lots of low branching.

Anyone ever tried to grow Pussy Willow in a pot? Lots of fine roots coming out of the holes in the black plastic pot.

I did a search on here for it and nothing came up.

Pussy willow a difficult trees to work with in my experience. I do not know where you live, but if you have freezing weather in the winter, expect a lot of branch dieback every year. But the trees have to be out for dormancy. They get dieback in the ground, too, but it doesn't matter there where you're not growing for shape. I still have one, but I'm not hopeful that it will every amount to much.
