- 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.
- Botanical NameSalix integra 'Hakuro Nishiki'
