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 flowers in spring, but they seem inconspicuous compared to the colorful foliage that really stands out.
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.
