The Q&A Archives: Location To Plant And Growth Rate

Question: Please give me information on salix integra 'Hakuro Nishiki'
dappled willow. I just bought one and need to know how fast
is it's growth and and best place to plant. It appears to be
a weeping type of tree. I live in a condo and need to know
how large it grows and how fast. thank you for any info you
can give me...

Answer: You've chosen well! The Dappled Willow, according to the description on the Monrovia Web site, says it's "scaled perfectly for the small garden...moderate-growing to 4 to 6 feet tall and wide." In which case, you can expect the roots to extend 1.5 times the reach of the canopy of the tree. However, willows have very extensive roots, so I would count on more like twice the reach of the canopy -- 12 feet.
