Unique Willow with 4 Season Appeal

The Dappled Willow, Salix Integra 'Hakuro-Nishiki', also known as Variegated Willow, is a small shrub that produces leaves that are variegated when they are young. It has pink flowers in spring.

It will mature to 4'-6' with an equal spread, but can be pruned to any size. The young branches grow out of the crown in all directions and will begin drooping slightly. Like all Willows, it thrives in moist soils and full to part sun. Prune in early spring to promote its elegant display and prune to promote variegated foliage.

This plant displays good winter interest with coral and red stems that contrasts with the landscape. The Dappled Willow is a superb accent plant and it will be a focal point in beds and borders. The Variegated Willow is also used for foundation plantings, alongside water features, in natural areas, and in containers.

Beautiful Review by Yorkxan
Our tree is about 5'. It grows 4-5' every year. In early spring when we trim the fruit trees we trim the dappled willow back to the nubs to enjoy the beautiful color of new growth. We have a small yard so keeping it contained is a must. I am looking at how to weave the living trees into an arbor.
Everyone should have this bush. Review by Cindy Hawk
My first dappled willow is now approx 10 feet tall X 10 feet wide. It is so gorgeous....I had to have more. Last year I planted 2 more and this year I planted 3 more. The two I planted last year really looked bad this spring but boy was I wrong - they took off like gang busters. I haven't pruned any of them and probably won't. I'm taking all my queues from the original one and have found them to be self-sufficient. I'm keeping them watered in the heat we are having just to give them a good start.

Willow in the Wind Review by dodat
This is a great plant that grows next to our home. There are 3 planted along the side of our house and they get plenty of wind. This is the 3rd year and they grow great after a strong pruning. They come back each year to about 6 feet by 6 feet. They fill up tne entire side of the house. Great!
Beautiful!!!!! Review by Binkysgarage
This has to be the "happiest" plant in my agarden. With its reaching foliage that is varigated in pinks and greens, it is saying "look at me". It is a very beautiful focal point in my garden and brings pleasure and smiles from everyone who sees it. Allow for room as it will display better if not crowded.
