Colorful deciduous shrub delivers year-round interest. In early to mid spring, petite yellow catkins emerge on rich red stems, followed by new growth. The new growth starts green and creamy white with pink overtones. The pink fades as the leaves mature leaving beautiful variegated leaves. Tolerant of wet situations, it's a good choice for the edge of a pond, stream or other body of water. It also makes a lovely shrub border or specimen plant. Prefers full sun, but appreciates afternoon shade in warmer climates. Grows 2-6' tall with a 2-4' spread. Ships in 4" pot. Zones 5-9. Salix integra 'Hakuro Nishiki'
