SA No. 540
Bosvaderlandswilg / Forest bushwillow
Another member of the Combretum family, and what a beautiful tree. With their marvellous red, maroon and purple leaves in autumn and winter, they are fast becoming very popular as garden and street trees in cities.
As with other Combretums, insect eating birds are attracted to these trees. You might see Shrikes, Puffbacks, Bulbuls, Woodpeckers and Cuckoos.
