AVAILABLE LATE SEPTEMBER 2018
Young bright pink shoots and slender creamy white dappled green leaves eagerly push upwards, forging a dramatic counterpoint to cream-streaked grayish green mature foliage. Interest persists as the year progresses: yellow foliar color heralds autumn, new polished bright red stems relieve a somber winter day and early spring brings pendant yellow catkins. ‘Hakuro Nishiki‘s graceful arching attributes deserve the spotlight a dark background affords. More acquiescent of slightly drier sites than most Salix, Dappled Japanese Willow thrives in moderately moist soil and appreciates a late winter or early spring pruning to ensure its stylish deciduous display.
Size: 5' 0" high x 3' 0" – 4' 0" wide.
