SALIX 'Flamingo'

Posted: 29/05/2014 at 18:17

Hello Aaron,,

It will be the leaves that are pink.  I trim mine in spring removing every dead or dying piece.  I also prune back to opening buds   Very time consuming/boring but it then makes for a beautiful pink, white, cream and pale green shrub.  

However, for this year I would just enjoy it

All my hostas are looking big and beautiful except for my new Fire Island.  May need more time to settle but it looks a weak grower....so far

Sorry folks.  Just domt like snakes.  Luckily I have a walled garden.  Adders, when they hiss at me, are disturbing.
