ABOUT: The Beautiful Weeping Willow Tree can sometimes take some bad 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.

Just as some palms and ferns can become weeds in Queensland, so to could a Willow in a poorly chosen position. I
n places like South Australia, Palms / Willow Trees have little to no chance of becoming a problem in this 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 say "we are in a very dry area, how much water does a Willow Tree need?" Well ... we grow them in the Australian Mallee! Our rainfall is under 16" (40cm) Per Year!!! 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.

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.

This ensures our willows have a strong and solid start to their growing years ready to move to their new homes.

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 trees to Growers
