- Popular for their unique color and are often used in floral arrangements and as ornamental plants.
- They can be propagated by taking hardwood cuttings in late fall or early winter and rooting them in moist soil or water.
- Once rooted, they can be planted in a sunny or partially shaded location with moist soil.
- They are typically low-maintenance plants and can grow up to 20 feet tall with a spread of 15 feet.

Here are some tips on how to tend to PINK Pussy Willow Cuttings:
- Potting: If you are rooting in a pot, make sure to use a well-draining potting mix and keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
- Light: Prefer bright, indirect light. Avoid exposing them to direct sunlight, which can scorch their leaves.
- Watering: Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Avoid letting the soil dry out completely or letting the plant sit in standing water.
- Fertilizer: Do not require frequent fertilization. You can apply a slow-release fertilizer in the spring or use a diluted liquid fertilizer every few weeks during the growing season.
- Pruning: Prune in late winter or early spring to maintain their shape and promote new growth. Remove any dead, diseased, or crossing branches.
- Winter Care: Are hardy plants that can tolerate cold temperatures. However, if you live in an area with harsh winters, you can protect the plant by covering it with a layer of mulch or burlap.
Remember to monitor your Pink Pussy Willow Cuttings regularly for signs of pests or diseases and take action promptly if needed.
