‘Mt. Aso’ Japanese Pink Pussy Willow

Salix gracilistyla 6x6' Possibly a hybrid of S. gracilistyla x S. caprea. Male specimen selected in Japan by Dr. Tsuneshige Rokujo. Mount Aso-san is Japan’s largest active volcano.

Pink buds open to cheery rosy pink catkins for a stunning early spring display. Excellent in cutflower arrangements. When some plants in our stark warehouse began to reveal their darling daubs of pink, the crew gathered round and cooed as if we’d discovered baby bunnies. Excellent in cut flower arrangements.

Foliage opens pink and turns rich blue-green with prominent veins and soft fuzzy undersides. Catkins form on second-year wood. Coppice just after flowering to keep form pulled in and less rangy. Easy to maintain. Prefers full sun and sandy soils but will do fine in average or moist conditions.

Z4. Maine Grown. (1-2' bare-root plants)
