Pussy Willow The pussy willow hosts several species of butterflies and is a valuable native plant. It grows in damp soil and has deep tap roots that absorb a lot of water . Plant in a rain garden of place that tends to stay wet after a rain. It is Dioecious (die A shus), meaning that male and female parts are found on different plants. The males have the larger, showier catkins, while the female catkins tend to be smaller and greenish. What most people think of as pussy willows are actually the flowering parts of the plant. Those fuzzy "fur coats" are keeping the reproductive parts of the plant warm. Some birds, especially hummingbirds, use that fuzzy softness to line their nests.
