Pussy Willow : Chinese New Year Flowers

the Pussy Willow grows well in Spring in China and is a favourite blossom for the Chinese who like it because each branch of the plant has many blosooms The sign of growth is auspicious for the Chinese who love plants which symbolizes prosperity.

The branches are bought in the wet market. But nowadays the plant can even be bought already potted and ready to bloom in south East Asia!!

In the Chinese homes, the branches are decorated with gold and red ornaments. Red ribbons are often tied on the branches to signify happiness.










Pussy Willows truly makes CNY atmosphere very different . It is like bringing Spring into our homes.

Wishing all of you a Blessed Lunar New Year!!
