Salix Gracilistyla Mount Aso – Pink Pussy willow Half Standard

Salix Gracilistyla Mount Aso – Pink Pussy willow is a stunning, deciduous shrub with a spreading, rounded habit. This Willow has stunning display of fuzzy catkins in late winter / early spring which open pink and turn silvery grey, these are followed by lance shaped, blue/green leaves that turn yellow in autumn before falling. The dense crown of branches looks great through winter adding an architectural quality to any border. Here the Pink Pussy Willow has been grafted onto a half standard stem to create a small tree, which raises the foliage to enable the stunning spring display to be seen. If the plant is required to be kept very compact the branches can be hard pruned in late winter and will grow out 1-1.2m in a single season, this prunuing will reduce the catkins though.

The Salix Gracilistyla Mount Aso  is grafted onto a different rootstock, so the eventual height is governed by the stem height it is grafted on to. These half standards have a 1m stem and the crown usually grows 2m taller than the graft.

Salix Gracilistyla Mount Aso will grow well in any moist to damp soils in full sun to part shade but Please note that waterlogged areas should be avoided.

Because of their wide spreading form these trees can only be offered for local delivery or collection, please contact us for more information regarding the item.
