Salix integra 'Hakuro Nishiki'

Salix integra 'Hakuro Nishiki' is grown in our willow beds at Lakeshore Willows for basketry and smaller living willow work.


  • This willow is known by many as the "dabbled" willow sold in nurseries for gardens
  • The leaves are variegated, green, white and pink during the first part of the summer
  • The rods are also somewhat variegated and dries up mainly a deep burgundy/brown
  • Usually not grown for basketry, but the finer rods are very good for weaving and have an exceptional colour

Growth Habit

Small shrub 1.5 m (5')


Good for smaller living willow projects and the smaller rods work well for basketry

IMPORTANT NOTE FROM LENE: I am not a horticulturist and the information provided for each willow variety is based on my observations growing and using the willows here at Lakeshore Willows. The information about growth habit is quoted from Christopher Newsholme's book: Willows, The Genus Salix.
