I've never seen pink pussy willow, but if you tell me they exist, I'll believe you Lori! Very nice macro shot. I've never looked at one this close up! #419013

Lori Ditlefsen March 11, 2004

Thank you Terry, Kasia, and Patricia.

Patricia, I found this article and cut out this part for you: "Most are grown for their striking male flowers or catkins which can range from cottony white to pink, purple, green and black and , make their appearances from mid winter to late spring". My guess is that the pink were planted in the area I found them in and not natural to the area.
