Varigated Dappled Willow Bush
Salix integra 'Hakuro Nishiki' 

The Variegated Dappled Willow Bush, commonly called Dappled Japanese Willow or Tri-color Dappled Willow by some, is a more compact cultivar of Salix integra that grows from 6 to 10 feet tall featuring very attractive variegated pink, white and green elongated leaves throughout the growing season. The cultivar name ‘Hakuro-nishiki’ refers to the blend of colors in the variegated leaves. In spring, the new foliage emerges pink then maturing to various shades of pink, white and green. But the show doesn't stop with the colorful foliage. During winter, the bright red stems are very showy in the landscape. 

The small to medium size makes Variegated Dappled Willow a perfect fit for smaller landscapes or garden spaces. The beautiful foliage is best set off against a dark background or around shrubs with deep foliage color. For a striking display, plant beside or in front of deep purple foliage plants such as a Loropetalum or near a red leafed Japanese Maple. The Variegated Dappled Willow is an excellent choice for a specimen plant in an open space or near a water feature. They will thrive in low areas that are generally more moist so do well in low-lying areas. It will also do well in a large container.

The Dappled Willow is easy to grow in wide range of soils provided they are well-drained, moist and fertile. That said, they will tolerate dry periods much better than other willow species. It will tolerate clay soil but we recommend amending with organic matter such as compost or a planting mix. It likes full to most sun in zones 5a-7a, but will appreciate some shade or filtered sun during the hottest afternoon hours in zones further south. No pruning is necessary however the plant responds well to pruning and shearing to either promote good color or maintain a desired size.  Pruning should be done while dormant, in either early winter or very early spring before catkins appear and any new leaves appear.  USDA Zones: 5a-9 Find Your Zone >
