Willow Nishiki Dappled Shrub | Nishiki Willow Salix integra Hakuro Nishiki. You are not going to believe what this shrub will do for your garden througout the seasons.
The Nishiki Willow is one of our best show stopping flowering shrubs for year round gardens. The show begins in spring for the Nishiki Willow Flowering Shrub with yellow catkins, followed by new foliage growth appearing green and creamy white with pink overtones, eventually turning salmon pink by summer. Then this willow shrub changes in fall with leaves turning yellow and winter branches again turning a brilliant red. The Nishiki Willow doesn't stop there! It is a fast growing shrub that can be planted to form plant hedges, privacy screens, windbreaks, or to line a road or driveway. You can expect this shrub to mature around 15 feet tall and 15 feet wide in about 3 to 4 years.
This fast growing shrub is easy to plant and easy to grow. The Nishiki willow, if pruned can be maintained with a great shape at 6 to 10 feet. Prune in late winter. This willow plant thrives under canopy trees both evergreen and deciduous. Its traditional use is beside streams and water features in Oriental gardens where, like most willows, it is tolerant of damp areas and seepage, but is also drought tolerant once established.
We first learned of this beautiful flowering shrub garden plant from our grower of our tree formed varieties of Althea and Forsythia. He is always coming to us with new plants to offer and this one is sure to be a winner among our Greenwood family. The Nishiki willow can be planted as a specimen plant, however they are especially elegant lining a walk, flanking an entryway or used in groupings planted 6 feet apart.
One of our Living Fence Plants.
