4ft Flamingo Willow - Salix integra 'Hakuro Nishiki'

The Salix Integra is a deciduous plant that boasts cream-pink foliage in the spring and summer which drops in autumn to show coral-orange stems. Having pendulous branches, this gorgeous willow tree is shaped like a lollipop, perfect in a pot or a small garden.

Usually a compact, weeping tree, this 'Hakuro Nishiki' is grafted to an upright rootstock, which means it will grow taller and straighter than a standard tree. This beautiful plant is delicate and slim, but hardy against the elements, and needs very little looking after.

Dramatic Foliage

One of the main atrractions of this dwarf willow tree is its dramatic foliage that changes with the seasons. It is sometimes referred to as the 'Flamingo Tree' and it easy to see why. The leaves are a colour explosion with pink-tipped, narrow, lance-shaped leaves surrounded by white and green foliage in the summer. When the leaves drop in the autumn the coral-orange stems continue to show meaning that this tree will provide your garden with colour and interest for a large section of each year.

Size and Shape

Salix integra 'Hakuro Nishiki' is a dwarf Japanese willow tree and its small stature means that it is a perfect patio or container tree. This particular tree has an ultimate height of roughly 2 metres and branches that droop slightly at the tips giving it a lovely, bushy, lollipop shape. This particular tree has been grafted on to a rootstock to help it to grow taller and straighter but it still maintains its popular shape.

Planting and Care

Suited to almost all, well-drained and moderately fertile soils with pH between 6.5 and 7.5 in an exposed or sheltered location in full sun. Before planting your tree, clean up all wandering weeds and keep a clean ring around the tree base. Autumn is the best season for planting trees, as the soil moisture and heat allow easier and faster root establishment and regeneration of damaged root systems. Keep a planting distance of at least 2 metres. Water young trees regularly until roots are well established. Trim annually from mid to late summer. Apply some fertiliser in spring in order to promote healthy growth and a good crop. Optionally, mulch in spring. Check tree ties regularly and loosen any if necessary to avoid rubbing of the stems.

How to Plant a Potted Tree

A containerised tree can be planted at any point during the year unlike a bare root one. As long as the ground that it is planted in is not frozen or waterlogged the tree should be able to establish itself in any season. When planting your tree make sure that it has been watered and that it is in a suitable position where it can recieve plenty of sunshine and shelter from cold winds.
