Plant your Tri-Color Dappled Willow in well-draining soil in a sunny location. This plant thrives in full to partial sun, so be sure the location you choose has a minimum of 4 hours of sunlight per day. To plant, dig a whole that is two to three times wider than the pot it’s shipped in and the same depth. Before placing the plant in the hole, remove the container and loosen the roots. Place your plant in the hole and backfill the dirt being careful not to pack the soil too tightly. Water immediately after planting to allow the dirt to settle and help the roots establish more quickly.
Water your Tri-Color Dappled Willow in the morning to help it thrive in its sunny location during the day. Water as needed to keep the soil is moist two inches down. If you’re unsure if you need to water, just check to see if the soil is moist two inches down at the base of the plant.
