Salix Fragilis (Crack/Brittle Willow)

Post  Mr Miyagi on Tue Nov 08, 2011 8:04 pm


Another Willow cutting here taken at roughly the same time as the Golden Weeping in previous post.

Hoping to get it to look like its full size counterpart rather than a Weeping Willow.

Again any advice would be appreciated.

If your thinking of growing out more traditionally styled Bonsai branches with this willow I will be curious to see how well you succeed.
The only Salix I have ever considered that approach with was Black willow, its leaves stay rather small and the growth habit is more dense and twiggy. Crack willow I believe can get leaves nearly 4 inches long

please keep us posted
