Mariosousa willardiana is a very slender tree with few branches as well as leaves. Beside the lacy form of this tree, its other distinguishing feature is the peeling, papery, silver-white bark. The Spanish common name translates into 'white stick', defining its peeling white bark. The flowers are like catkins, rod or bottle-brush-like, white or cream colored.
