Willows often appear in fiction.
They can be portrayed as kind and wise or aggressive and fearsome, but they are always very mysterious trees.
In this blog I will feature four different willow characters:
Created by J.K. Rowling for Harry Potter series, the Whomping Willow is a large, magical and violent tree that attacks anyone and anything that comes within range of its branches.

Grandmother Willow is an ancient weeping willow tree from the Disney film Pocahontas. She is wise and motherly, acting as a spiritual adviser to Pocahontas.

Old Man Willow
From J.R.R. Tolkien novel The Fellowship of the Ring, the Old Man Willow is a great willow tree of the Old Forest. He has great power and hates all the walking things with boldness to cross the Forest.

The Cthaeh appears in the The Wise Man’s Fear novel by Patrick Rothfuss. It is described as an evil oracle that uses this knowledge to cause the worst possible outcomes for as many people as possible. However its flowers are panacea, a cure for all ailments.
