The Weeping Willow's grace comes from its sweeping, low branches that droop to create its familiar “falling” canopy.
A favorite among tree lovers for its dramatic appearance and rounded, weeping shape.
Perfect for those looking for a quick way to add character and value to their property. An excellent shade tree that is always in high demand.
This willow is one of the fastest growing shade trees, growing up to 6-8 ft. a year. They start out thin, with only a few branches that point upward against the trunk. After racing to a height of about 10 ft., they put out more and more branches that arch outword to form the weeping canopy they're famous for.
Thrives in Growing Zones 4-9, and has the ability to absorb standing water. Plant near trouble spots where water stands in puddles, and watch them disappear.
Even though Weeping Willows are often found near rivers, lakes and wetlands, they can grow just about anywhere, even demonstrating some tolerance to drought.
Very adaptable to all kinds of soils and growing conditions; these trees can even help prevent soil erosion.
You will enjoy your Weeping Willow as a first harbinger of spring when its leaves appear before most others, and as one of the last trees to lose its leaves in the fall.
• Excellent green color in the spring and summer months
