Flamingo Tree in a 14cm Pot
- Flamingo Salix are an extremely popular plant, with spectacular deep pink foliage covering the entire shrub in Spring.
- Elegant and fast-growing with new shoots which are heavily blotched with white and pink, fading as the leaf ages, this is fully hardy and very easy to grow.
- Slender yellow catkins appear in spring before the leaves, these retain a strong pink colour throughout the growing season.
- The branches are long and slightly droop, giving a relaxed feel making it an ideal for growing planted in a pot on the patio or in garden beds and borders.
Grow to between 100 and 150 cm in height.
