  1. Love the pussy willows! Wish I had some!

    1. Hi Jason,

      Aren't they cool!? One of my favorite things about this shrub/tree is that it looks like a pussy willow, but it's actually a Magnolia stellata 'Royal Star'. So, come spring I'll have gorgeous fragrant white blooms (hopefully). I had to look up some scientific information about the buds, as I was curious if other plants/shrubs could be lumped into the "pussy willow" category because of them. I found they are separately classified, but the buds the pussy willows are called "catkins." Neato! Thanks for helping me create a new wrinkle in my brain!
