Dappled Willow

Grown as a colorful shrub or small tree and a member of the Willow family, they are gaining in popularity for home landscaping.  Native to Korea and Japan where they are known to grow along river banks.  This is a graceful shrub with four season interest.  In spring, small yellow 1 inch catkins appear – usually in April or May.  Then salmon color leaf buds appear and opening to reveal 4 inch narrow light green leaves that change to pink, cream and green variegated leaves.  This variegation gives the shrub a dappled look.  Leaves of the Dappled Willow will turn yellow in the fall before falling from the stems in October/November.  The stems will turn red during  winter which continues to add color and interest to your garden.

Grow the Dappled Willow  (salix integra ‘Hakuro-hishiki’) in full sun to part shade.  Full sun will bring out the best colors.  They are tolerate of wet soil, erosion, and black walnut.  Hardiness zone is 5-7.    Dappled Willows are deciduous (loose leaves during winter) and grow 4-6 feet high and wide but can be pruned to maintain desired height.  Pruning should be done during the dormant months of winter.  They are fast growing and will add color/interest to any landscape.

A beautiful and unique shrub that will add color and interest to any home garden.dappled willow
