Product Description

Wow!... Just wow!! You really can't get a more striking plant for your late winter and spring garden - and we're so excited to be able to bring it to you!

This new introduction is absolutely exquisite with its gorgeous pink fluffy catkins which just beg to be stroked as you walk past the bush. The 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, with the promise of warmer weather to come.

When grown as a hedge or as coppices, the new young growth is luminous with fire when the catkins break - itís really a sight to behold
 
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. In fact, 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 abilty to tolerate pollution, salt sea air and damp areas - a truly versatile and useful plant!

We supply an established plant in a 12cm pot, with an ultimate height and spread of approx. 4.5m x 3m, but can be restricted by pruning.

Plant Information

Top Tips

Force blooms for cut-flower displays by cutting stems and placing them in water indoors as early as January.

Care Guide

  • Water well until established - willow loves water!
  • Apart from keeping plants well-watered, they are virtually maintenance free - even pruning is simple, just prune out dead or old wood to encourage new shoots to appear.
  • Any shoots that have grown too long can also be shortened.
  • To keep size in check, plants can be coppiced every 2-3 years to encourage new growth from the base.
