Dappled Willow on Standard
Like all willows, this grafted plant loves water. It can tolerate damp soil and will grow and grow if waters regularly. The plant itself is shaped like an upright button- some liken it to a UFO as it hovers on a thin stem about 4' above the ground. The leaves are what set this willow apart. In Spring, they open slightly white and turn orange in color- almost like a dream sickle. This orange color stays on the plant through the beginning few fews of summer before relaxing into a light green color. The plant benefits from pruning and can be cut back annually. Grafted at 48".
