Cape Willow tree (also known as Safsaf willow) is remarkably resistant to frost and can withstand medium drought. Salix mucronata is semi-deciduous and fast growing. It is the only indigenous willow tree in South Africa and grows in the water courses in the Eastern and Western Cape. When grouped together, a stand of Cape willow trees resembles the ubiquitous non indigenous willow tree. Salix mucronata has an aggressive root system and does not flourish in a container. It can be planted in clay soil. It is not recommended for a small garden. 

Value to honeybees: Nectar, N?;  Pollen, P1;   Flowering months 8-5, (8-10).   (See  blog-post "The bee-value of South Africa's trees" for an explanation of codes)
