About the Globe Navajo Willow Tree

The Globe Navajo Willow (Salix babylonica ‘Navajo’) is a cultivar of the Babylon willow tree, which is native to parts of Asia and Europe. The rich history of the Navajo Globe Willow dates back all the way to a Jesuit priest who brought cuttings with him from China when he was stationed in New Mexico. The tree survived 100 years without help and is now a staple in the Southwest region. The ‘Navajo’ cultivar is known for its distinctive, rounded shape and its ability to tolerate a wide range of growing conditions.

One of the standout characteristics of the Globe Navajo Willow is its dense, spherical crown of green foliage. Its branches do not weep downward like other willows but rather up into the sky. The crown is always a neat and pristine round shape that resembles a dome without any pruning. The Globe Navajo Willow is a deciduous tree, which means that it loses its leaves in the fall and grows new leaves in the spring. The leaves are light green in the spring, darkening to a medium green in the summer and have hints of yellow in the fall.

The Globe Navajo Willow is a popular choice for landscapes and gardens due to its unique shape and ability to thrive in a variety of conditions. It is also often used along waterways, as it has a natural tendency to stabilize the soil and prevent erosion.

How to Grow a Globe Navajo Willow Tree

This long-living tree is easy to maintain and will be enjoyed for generations! The Globe Navajo Willow is relatively fast-growing and can reach heights of up to 40 feet or more. It is also relatively drought-tolerant and can survive in dry, arid environments. It is ideal for desert climates and high altitudes. Like other willow trees, it prefers moist, well-draining soil and full sun to partial shade. Navajo does not require as much moisture in the soil and is more cold-hardy hardy than other varieties.

In summary, Navajo is a hardy, fast-growing willow tree that is well-suited to a wide range of growing conditions. Its distinctive, rounded shape and fast-growing nature make it a popular shade tree for landscapes and gardens.
