The word catkin is a loanword from the Middle Dutch katteken, meaning “kitten” (compare also German Kätzchen). This name is due either to the resemblance of the lengthy sorts of catkins to a kitten’s tail, or to the fine fur found on some catkins.
A catkin or ament is a slim, cylindrical flower cluster (a spike), with inconspicuous or no petals, usually wind-pollinated (anemophilous) but sometimes insect-pollinated (as in Salix)
Willows are dioecious, with male and female flowers appearing as catkins on separate plants; the catkins are produced early in the spring, often before the leaves.
Catkin-bearing plants include many other trees or shrubs such as birch, willow, hickory, sweet chestnut and sweetfern (Comptonia).
