Family Rutaceae (Rue family)

Plant Identification

Australian willows are evergreen trees that grow up to 25 to 30 feet tall.  Branches sweep up and out and long, narrow leaves hang down giving the appearance of a weeping willow.  Small white flowers are produced in the spring and fall.

Optimum conditions for growth

Australian willows are grown as patio trees or street trees.  They do well in full sun with little to moderate water and well-drained soils.  Some pruning is required to keep its shape.
