Pussy willows will grow in damp soils. In fact, there are many plants, including pussy willow to consider for damp areas: Arborvitae; Bayberry; Blueberry; Chokeberry;
Deutzia; Forsythia; Fothergilla; Hydrangea; Leucothoe; Leyland cypress; Nandina;
Privet; Spicebush; Viburnum; Virginia sweetspire and Winterberry holly, just to name a few. Best wishes with your landscape!
