Hi everyone. I have a lovely salix flamingo that I bought last year and it had lovely pink tips. This year it has grown back lovely and bushy... but totally green! No pink tips at all.. any ideas why?

    Don’t you worry ... the pink will come soon enough.  Always starts green with the fresh new growth 😉

    Oh ok... 😂..  in other words I'm being too hasty!..  hahaha... 
    Well that's great to hear that they will turn pink soon. Is there a specific season for blooming?
    Thanks for your reply! 
  • They are lovely and I think your backdrop is excellent.

    As far as I remember (the last time I grew this being around 25 years ago), the leaves should start turning pink in May. But others may be able to correct me.
