New to us, Salix gracilistyla 'Mt. Aso' has unusual bright pinkish-red catkins in late winter and early spring. These are very handsome and much sought after for use in flower arranging. The summer leaves are dark green in colour.

Salix gracilistyla 'Mt. Aso' is an excellent large shrub which looks particularly good when planted near a stream or pond. For the best catkin display we would recommend pruning this plant hard back every 3 - 4 years.
