This fun lollipop-shaped small tree is ideal for a limited space garden, patio or in-city balcony. Also known as the Flamingo tree, it will add delicate colour and an element of interest to your living space all year round.
The Salix integra 'Hakuro Nishiki' is a fast growing, elegant tree that is known for its unusual new shoots in spring. They appear with a distinct mottled white and pink colouring. As they grow and push their way amongst the deeper green older foliage, a wonderful contrast is created. When the leaves age, they turn to a luscious deep green.
In winter, the tree will lose its leaves, exposing bare orange to brown branches. At this stage and into early spring, the Flamingo becomes intriguing again with the appearance of abundant slender yellow catkins that hang off the pendulous branches.
The Flamingo is easy to grow and prefers moist but well drained soil. It will also do well in a pot or container. It is fully hardy and will tolerate full sun. The tree does not grow tall, reaching a maximum of around 2m, but will thicken out with age, making it look richer and more luscious. Older branches become pendulous and can be pruned to maintain a neat shape if wanted. If planted in a pot or container, ensure a good watering routine to keep it moist.
