Description

You really can't get a more striking plant for your late winter and spring garden than this beautiful Salix gracilistyla 'Mount Aso'.
Also known as the Japanese Pink Pussy Willow, it is simply exquisite with its gorgeous pink fluffy catkins. These fuzzy bunny tails burst from the tight maroon buds as the temperature warms in early spring, bringing a splash of vibrant colour to your garden.
Perfect for a winter garden, the pussy-willow catkins start to appear from late winter and last well into the spring, and the stems are truly impressive when cut and brought into the house for an early flower display. This variety was bred for the cut-flower market, by a cut-flower arranger, so you know that the stems will make a great visual impact.
As the season progresses, the tiny pink powder puffs gradually turn golden as the pollen emerges, bringing a subtle shift of colour to the whole bush, before the blue-green leaves emerge and form a magnificent backdrop to other plants and flowers in the garden.
Not just a pretty face, 'Mount Aso' is also known for its ability to tolerate pollution, salt sea air and damp areas – a truly versatile and useful plant!
Supplied as an established plant in a 15cm pot, ready to plant out. Growing to a height and spread of 2m, but it can be restricted by pruning.
