Salix integra 'Hakuro-nishiki' standard

cantelopejoe(7)October 7, 2013

Greetings! I recently purchased a Salix integra 'Hakuro-nishik' for a cove in my front yard. It in centered in a corner between my sidewalk and my house. I live in zone 7b. The tree is 5'-7' away from the foundation. It is about 30' from any water lines and about 80' from out septic tank (lines are in opposite direction from tree). Any concerns with the tree. I understand it is grafted on standard willow stock. Also, it is in partial sun.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

It is my understanding that they're grafted onto *a* willow stock, but not the typical "ginormous" weeping willow root. ie, It has vigorous roots (I can confirm this from mine), but not crazy like a regular willow. I was told it's "a well behaved willow." For what that's worth. 7', probably not an issue IMO, but someone smarter than me might chime in here.
