Dappled Japanese Willow
This diverse genus includes 300 deciduous species that are a breeze to grow in just about any garden soil. Our offerings emphasize intriguing stems, foliage and silhouettes.
Young bright pink shoots plus the slender cream-dappled green leaves forge a dramatic counterpoint to white-streaked grayish green mature foliage. Interest persists as the year progresses: yellow foliar color heralds autumn, new polished bright red stems brighten a winter day, and early spring brings pendent yellow catkins. ‘Hakuro Nishiki’s graceful arching attributes deserve the spotlight a dark background affords. Somewhat more tolerant of occasional dry conditions than most Salix, Dappled Japanese Willow prospers in moderately moist soil and appreciates a late winter or early spring pruning to ensure its artful deciduous display.
Size: 4' 0" – 6' 0" high x 3' 0" – 5' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 5.
