ABOUT: The Beautiful Weeping Willow Tree can sometimes take some mixed publicity in places like SA along the Murray River, but only half the story is ever told and just like anything that grows, everything has its place and this tree makes an amazing feature in the backyard of a well planned garden or even an amazing bonsai. In fact Willow trees also add amazing water management for wet areas, holding creek banks and fish breeding / shelter. You won't believe how many finches love to live and play in a Willow Tree.
Just as some palms and fern trees can become weeds in places like SE Queensland, so could a Willow in a poorly chosen position. In places like South Australia, Palms / Willow Trees have little to no chance of becoming a problem in the dry climate unless planted in a permanent creek or wetlands basin. This tree does not send airborne spores into the world and must be planted. The spectacular Willow is a fast grower and will quickly add a magical element to your garden. So next time someone says "Willows are a bad thing" you can reply with "Do some research!"
WATER REQUIREMENTS: People often ask "can you grow Willow Trees in a hot dry areas of Australia!?" Well ... we grow our Willows in the Australian Mallee! Our rainfall is under 16" (40cm) Per Year!
Our summer heat waves are insane with many days over 35 degrees and no humidity!
Providing they can access some water via driplines or naturally when needed, they do very well with plenty of full sunlight. It doesn't get much harsher than the Mallee and I can assure you when we sit under our Willow Trees over Summer, the neighbouring farms are green with envy! This year we had a very dry summer with almost no rain and 3 weeks in a row of near 40 degree days with not a drop of rain. Willow Trees are very good at telling you when they are thirsty, so providing you can give it a good drink when required, dry conditions should not provide any obstacle.
For the hot season ... We have small sprayers set up under the Willow Trees that spray up into the lower canopy and then drip back down onto their shallow roots. We don't use them often, but handy to have in a hot spell! Willows will tell you when they are thirsty fast with leaves turning yellow, getting smaller or falling off.
Needless to say, if you are in a wet area, no watering is required and they do a great job of mopping up damp ground.

ABOUT OUR PLANTS & CUTTINGS
Willow trees take on an exact clone of their "actual" parent and at Rocky Gully Creek, we clone our stock or hand pick new healthy wild grown stock, to ensure great looking Willow Trees! All cuttings that have been cloned and planted and are pest treated, hormone boosted, plus organic root tablets to ensure good strong growth before being transplanted into a commercial mixture of soil / clay. This ensures our willows have a strong and solid start to their growing years ready to move to their new homes.
Our cuttings (As pictured right) feature strong nudes and bare roots, ready to be transplanted to a pot or your garden (These are easily mailed Australia Wide)

WEEPING WILLOW TREE BONSAI
One of the most popular bonsai trees is the Weeping Willow. This tree is well-known for its lovely drooping branches and leaves. It is a favourite of most bonsai growers because aside from its lovely appearance, it looks dramatic in any kind of bonsai style.The tree is also fast-growing so you will be able to see results in a relatively short amount of time. The Willow originated in China but thrives in most climates.
Bonsai lovers also pick the Weeping Willow because of its changing appearance. The catkins start in lovely silver color and then turns cream as the tree matures.
Please Note: We do not sell Bonsai Trees! But we sell many Willow Tree Wands and Cutting to Bonsai Growers. Easy to grow and start your project!
