February 15

Salix gracilistyla ‘Mount Aso’


Small fuzzy blooms tinged with dark pink

Surprising cheerful winter flowers

Softer to the touch than you think

I could just pet them for hours


This plant is a new one for me

One I am glad I got to see

I think this is one for the yard

Avoiding petting will be hard.
