What is the best way to prune a dappled willow, to maintain the form, but keep it 3-5 feet high?

This plant can be pruned back in the spring to remove winter damage and to encourage branching and bushiness from the base. You may also need to prune periodically during the season to keep it that small. To avoid a sheared effect, trim individual older branches off near the base to thin the plant, and then trim longer tips off individually by reaching deeper inside the shrub. Enjoy your Salix integra 'Hakura Nishiki'.
