Quick Overview:

Commonly called dappled Japanese willow or variegated willow. It features attractive variegated foliage throughout the growing season. New foliage emerges pink in spring, maturing to variegated shades of pink, creamy white and green. Narrow, lance-shaped leaves are particularly attractive in spring to early summer, but gradually fade to mostly green as summer progresses. Stems turn red (primarily the new growth stems in Zones 4-5) in fall providing excellent winter interest. All stems turn red in warm winter climates. Trunk does not turn red but remains gray.

Description

Grow in moist, fertile, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Prefers full sun, but appreciates some part afternoon shade in hot summer climates. Best foliage color occurs in cool summer climates north of USDA Zone 7. Thrives in consistently moist soils, but tolerates somewhat drier soils better than many other willows. Prune as needed in late winter to early spring. Many gardeners prune stems back in late winter each year to encourage more vigorous growth and to control plant size.
