Our Grey Willow Tree Gift is a joy to give for its natural elegance. It’s easy to see why it was considered the ‘Tree of Enchantment’ in Celtic mythology. Weddings, anniversaries, and memorials are all fitting occasions to give loved ones this native tree.

Friends and family will welcome our willow tree sapling, its slender trunk and oval-shape, light green leaves are simple but enamouring. The bark fissures and turns grey-brown as it matures. Silky flowers bloom in spring, attracting butterflies, birds, and bees. Willow saplings thrive in wet woodlands and grow in a sprawling manner, but can be trained to grow neatly. It was said the world hatched from two eggs hidden on the bough of a Willow and its wood was often used to make wands. This tree’s natural beauty and Celtic lore make it a truly meaningful gift.

Bought this of 'willow' as a 9th Wedding Anniversary - as something to grow and nurture..... Arrived on time (even the delivery driver came back later in the day to make sure we had it). Simply put excellent!

Given by a special person to a special person, therefore it cannot fail to grow tall and strong.
