Boyd's Willow - Salix boydii

Regular price $24.99

Pre-bonsai trees are bigger than our usual size and have thicker trunks and lower branches that make it an ideal bonsai subject - or let it grow on it's own and the Boyd's Willow will still be a very sweet miniature tree. 

A favorite. A dwarf willow for the miniature garden with a growth rate of about 3" per year - although it has been growing a lot slower for us here in Seattle, Wa.

This tree is deciduous, meaning it drops its leaves in the fall to go dormant in the winter and the leaves will back in the spring.

Discovered in Scotland, Boyd's Willow grows really slowly to about 12 inches tall and it a hardy little gem for just about any miniature garden scene. Round, furry, blue-gray leaves are perched on little gnarled branches. Needs sharp, well draining soil (add and or extra perlite.)
