Lux Sepulcralis

Fantasy Trees, Ink, Watercolour

The Weeping Light Willow is a weeping tree found near sheltered lakes and rivers throughout New Zealand. It can grow up to 22m tall.

Buds appear in Spring, containing clusters of luminescent fruits that drape below on long vines. As the bud opens into a flower, the fruits remain, attracting moths that feed on the flower’s nectar and pollinate it.
