Tree Huggers – Willow Tree

willowReturning to popularity, the Willow tree is the drama-queen of the landscape. Long leaves hang low to brush a brow or catch the slightest breeze, making a production of it.
Shunned for being “dirty”, dropping leaves, seeds, branches and all manner of detritus on a lawn, landscapers are learning how to place the willows where they can can do less (esthetic) harm and still provide some artistic license.
Think, carefully, before you get a willow, be prepared to deal with its slovenly habits and accept it for what it is…a real beauty.
