Red bushwillow is frost sensitive and moderately drought tolerant. It is a semi-deciduous tree with an informal growth form. Combretum apiculatum may exhibit striking autumn colors (depending on climate). Fruits remain on the tree for a long time, which gives it a striking appearance. Red bushwillow’s root system is non-aggressive and the tree’s mature size is medium to small. 

 A few gardening ideas:

Red bushwillow's size and non-invasive root system makes it a good choice for the smaller garden. It has the typical Combretum look and feel:- fresh-green leaves in spring, winged fruit remaining on the tree for a long time, and attractive autumn colors.

Value to honeybees: Nectar, N0-3;  Pollen, P0-3;  Flowering months 8-1, (9-10).   (See  blog-post "The bee-value of South Africa's trees" for an explanation of codes)
