The short answer is: sort of.

The long answer is a little more satisfying. Pussy willows grow in USDA zones 4-8. Here's a map of Louisiana's zones:

If you're in the northern two thirds of the state, you're in zone 8.

Just because the tree will grow, however, doesn't necessarily mean it'll be at peak performance. Pussy willows need a certain amount of chilling during the winter in order to flower. If you're in zone 8, there's a chance your tree just won't get cold enough some years to bloom well.
