Salix flamingo.


By Kate123

Salix flamingo. (Salix integra)

Close up of the Salix flamingo leaves. Such a pretty pink tip..lots of new growth.
My only issue is - the branches seem a little sparse. Lots of new growth noted, so, I’m hoping it will fill out and bush up soon!

when the tips lose their pink tips nip the tips of a few off the branches. This will stimulate side buds to break to make it more bushy.

Thank you so much, Eileen! I was despairing a bit as it’s a little scanty..OH calls it sticky stick!
