Although not a true willow, Australian Willow does share some of their desirable qualities. The leaves are long and slender, and the branches grow up and out with some sweeping limbs that appear similar to weeping willows. Trees grow to a size of 25-30 feet tall and 20 feet wide. They make ideal patio and street trees with deep, non-invasive roots. Trees produce small inconspicuous white flowers and fruit.
