This striking willow is an excellent choice for multi-season interest in the garden. 'Hakuro-Nishiki' covers itself in a cloak of finely variegated foliage, spanning the rainbow from white, through cream, pink, rose and green. Variegation lasts through much of the growing season. The arrival of cold autumn weather sees the leaves turn yellow, before they drop to reveal coral red branch tips. Recipient of the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
