Geijera parviflora

Austrailian Willow
Rutaceae
Evergreen, Trees

Graceful, fine-textured tree from Australia. Grows to 25–30 ft. tall and 20 ft. wide, with the main branches sweeping up and out, little branches hanging down. Distant citrus relative; called a willow because its narrow, drooping, 3–6-in.-long leaves give a weeping–willow effect. Casts light shade.

With age, produces loose clusters of unimportant small, creamy white flowers in early spring and early fall. Has much of willow’s grace and eucalyptus’s toughness. Trouble-free patio, street, or grove tree. Deep, noninvasive roots. Grow in well-drained soil.
