Dappled Willow

Bearing petite catkins of yellow in early to mid spring, the rich red stems of the Dappled Willow deliver another level of beauty when new flowers appear and last for weeks into the summer. Unique blooms have an exotic flair and beautiful color palette of soft green, pink and cream. Gently arching branches mature to create a dazzling focal point, low-growth hedge or back-border planting. Grows 4-6 ft. tall with a slightly larger spread. Blooms best in full to part sun. Zones 5-8.

  • CommentsThe Japanese name refers to the beautiful coloration of the leaves. A popular small mounding shrub that is slow to establish but the wait is well worth it. Petite yellow catkins emerge in early to mid spring on the rich red stems followed by new growth that is green and cream with a pink overtone. Young branches start out somewhat stiff in appearance and take on a more willowy cascade with age. Annual light pruning will encourage best variegation for the leaves.
