Salix Fragilis (Crack/Brittle Willow)

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

Hi IBC

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
