The Willow Tree (latin: Salix) is a robust, resilient tree species. She lives on the edge of riverbeds and in wetlands – she likes to get her feet wet. Her willowy limbs reach up to the sky in vivid colours of deep purple or mustard yellow in the late winter.
Willows can be easily tamed to be the base for living fences – stakes stuck in the ground quite easily take root to start a new tree. The flexible branches are also used in basketry and wattle work.
The Willow Tree symbolizes flexibility, adaptability, and resilience.
