of Bark & Limbs in Winter
Nishiki Variegated Willow
'Hakuro Nishiki' or just 'Nishiki' Japanese willow
has variegated leaves of great beauty
spring through autumn, but come winter,
it takes on new color even without leaves.
Younger twigs turn coral red during the chilly season.
Another December portrait, taken one year later,
shows less color around the aging trunk because only
the newest branches have extreme winter color.
The more pruning it had the previous spring,
the more red twigs it will develop,
but we are letting ours grow large & fountaining,
so the bigger interior limbs remain orange & green
with less coral red..
