Salix integra 'Flamingo' 12cm

Special Variety

Salix integra 'Flamingo'

Διάμετρος γλάστρας:12cm, Ύψος: 35εκ.

Προσελκύοντας το βλέμμα με τα φωτεινά, επιδεικτικά του χρώματα, η Salix integra  είναι φυλλοβόλος θάμνος ή μικρό δέντρο μεγάλης καλλωπιστικής ομορφιάς.

Συμπαγές, έχει ένα φωτεινό πολύχρωμο φύλλωμα σε χαριτωμένα κλαδιά καθ' όλη τη διάρκεια της χρονιάς. Έχοντας αναδυθεί ροζ την άνοιξη, τα στενά, σε σχήμα λόγχης φύλλα, ωριμάζουν σταδιακά σε ποικίλες αποχρώσεις του ροζ, του κρεμ-λευκού και του πράσινου, πριν ξεθωριάσουν σε πράσινο καθώς προχωρά το καλοκαίρι.

Το φθινόπωρο, τα φύλλα κιτρινίζουν πριν πέσουν στο έδαφος αποκαλύπτοντας κοραλλί μίσχους για όλο το Χειμώνα.


Attracting the eye with its bright, showy colors, Salix integra  is a deciduous shrub or small tree of great beauty.

Compact, it sports a luminous variegated foliage on graceful branches throughout the growing season. Emerging pink in spring, the narrow, lance-shaped leaves gradually mature to variegated shades of pink, creamy-white and green, before fading to green as the summer progresses. In the fall, the leaves eventually turn yellow before shedding to the ground, revealing coral red stems to enjoy in winter.

In the coldest regions, zones 4 and 5, only the new growth will turn coral red. The entire length of the branches will turn coral red in warmer climates.

This graceful shrub is a perfect garden accent, thanks to its multiseason interest.

  • Winner of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society
  • Grows up to 120-180 cm and across 150-210 cm across.
  • Performs best in full sun to part shade , in fertile, moist, well-drained soils. Prefers full sun, but welcomes some afternoon shade in hot summer areas. Best foliage color occurs in cool summer areas (north of USDA Zone 7).
  • Easy to grow, easy to care for and deer tolerant. Watch for aphids, caterpillars, leaf beetles, sawflies, willow anthracnose or rust.
  • Great for beds and borders or as an informal hedge or privacy screen. Great for city gardens, cottage gardens, or along streams or ponds.
  • Prune as needed in late winter to early spring. Many gardeners prune the stems back in late winter each year to encourage more vigorous growth, more colorful foliage (as it results in new growth), and to control the plant size. Pruning may also improve the red branch color for winter, as the newest growth is the reddest.
