Salix 'Flamingo'

Genus: Salix.

Species: Salix.

5ft grafted tree bought from QD stores mid feb 2008, had to shuffle things about a bit to squeeze it in, but i have found the perfect place in the left hand bed, inbetween the hebe heartbreaker and the phormium which was moved along to where the strawberry fields was to make room - the whole bed looks much better. although this was a complete impulse buy - how could i resist at just £7.99? - it is absoloutely perfect for this area!

can be pruned a few times during the summer to produce new shoots that make the plant more bushy at the desired length. first pruning march-april after the frost period is over.
