Salix integra 'Hakuro-Nishiki'

Salix integra 'Hakuro-Nishiki'
dappled willow
New growth (shown here in late March) looks green to me
Salix integra 'Hakuro-Nishiki'
Irregular variegation pattern, each pair of leaves having a different look from their neighbors (but similar to each other).

Common name dappled willow
Family salicaceae
Life cycle shrub (Z5-7)
Flowers yellow-green (early spring)
Size 5'
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes prefers moist soil

The leaves on this ornamental willow mature to creamy white blotched with green by early summer. Reports are that new foliage is supposed to come in pink, but I've witnessed only light green. Yellow fall color, red stems in winter. Yellowish catkins in early spring. Our specimen is still small, although I'm already afraid I didn't allow it enough room to spread out where I planted it.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
