Velvet bushwillow withstands moderate frost and is somewhat drought resistant. It is deciduous and grows at a medium rate. Its leaves are covered with soft hairs, which gives them a velvety appearance and touch. Combretum molle has a compact growth form. Its root system is non-aggressive and mature trees are small to medium in size. Velvet bushwillow is a good candidate for the smaller garden. It responds well to pruning and does well in a container. It is one of the most beautiful Combretums and an undiscovered jewel.

Value to honeybees: Nectar, N0-3;  Pollen, P0-3;  Flowering months 8-11, (9-10).   (See  blog-post "The bee-value of South Africa's trees" for an explanation of codes)
