Japanese variegated willow (Salix integra 'Hakuro-nishiki')
SAY-liks in-TEG-rah
Genus:  Salix
The branches of this shrub are slightly upright, taking a softer fountain shape as they lengthen. The leaves are mottled in shades of white, pink, and green, maturing to green and cream. Stems turn a striking red.
Care:  Prune in early spring or late fall to maintain white-and-pink variegation. Cut back in July to keep it small. Grow in average soil and full sun.
Propagation:  Take softwood cuttings in spring or hardwood cuttings in winter. This plant roots very easily.
Problems:  Infrequent.
