Striking lemon-yellow foliage ageing to lime-green on a dense weeping small tree are the outstanding attributes of this adaptable form of Willow Peppermint. It makes a great street or feature tree to provide foliage colour-contrast and is particularly good for coastal areas. It is also virtually maintenance-free apart from the occasional removal of dead or dying branches.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
