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
- Virtually no tree litter

Everyone remembers the Weeping Willow mentioned in many poems, songs and stories because of its grace and beauty.

We planted a Weeping Willow in the yard of our rental property in 2010 to take care of a really wet soil problem and because we love willows. Our tenant laughed at the 2 ft. stick that I was planting. Well, 3 years later there is a 25 ft gorgeous tree that has taken care of our drainage problem and is a spectacular addition to our property. Needless to say, our tenant is impressed. We recently purchased another Weeping Willow and planted it near our pond and I am sure that it will be just as beautiful as the first one. We are sold on Fast Growing Trees.com and we tell all our friends and family. Thanks for great products and service. Ed Schichte

I would recommend spending a little more money and getting the larger size they have available
December 31, 2012
Probably like a lot of you, I was scared when I opened this poor, leaf-less sapling; however, it is a THRIVING tree now, and that is not because of anything I did. If you follow the instructions, these trees will GROW and GROW
December 31, 2012
I purchased a weeping willow in spring 2011 because it said it would grow up to 6 feet per year. 2 years later it is just 6 feet - more like a slow growing tree to me. It looks like a skinny stick in the back yard - very disappointing.

This is the second summer for our fast growing weeping willow trees. It was also the longest streek of 90 degree temps and driest on record for Indiana. We watered them this year with a few buckets about a dozen times and they have just surpassed our expectations. Full, lush and absolutely fast growing. I would recommend these for anyone that loves the beauty of a willow tree

We have two large weeping willow trees in our front yard that we purchased about a decade ago. They are pretty much at their mature height with a spread of about 20 ft. Everyone who walks by loves their graceful branches. We havent had any problems with our weeping willows shade trees. We are a true example of how weeping willows can grow perfectly fine without any standing water nearby.
December 31, 2012
I ordered a weeping willow right before spring and was a little worried that it was a bad idea because I live in Montana and we don't have soil we have rock but I've always wanted one and so has my dad so we planted it and to both of our amazement it is doing REALLY well and has grown so much already! It hasn't even been 2 months yet and it has so much new growth and the leaves and branches are double at least! I ordered a 3-4 ft I believe or maybe a 4-5ft but it is well on its way to being 6 feet already. I am truly amazed and happy with it.
December 31, 2012
My weeping willow I purchased from you is doing well so far!!
December 31, 2012
I placed a very large order and one of the trees I ordered was Weeping Willow for a slightly boggy area, hoping it would help dry up the surrounding soil as it grew. I planted it in late May and I'm amazed that it has already grown about 2 ft.! This is exactly what I'd hoped for. I'll be ordering another one or two Willows next spring

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Weeping Willow

Your Weeping Willow Tree will thrive in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Weeping Willow trees are shade tolerant and should be planted at least 35 feet away from septic tanks. Weeping Willow Trees have aggressive roots that actively seek water.

Weeping Willow Trees adapt well to all soil types, even soils that are heavy in clay or sandy. Keep your soil moist, water your Weeping Willow Tree two to three times a week during it's first year. Apple a layer of mulch after the base of your tree to hold the moisture in. After a year your Weeping Willow will adapt to drier soil won't need extra water unless you're experiencing a drought.

Fertilize your Weeping Willow Tree once every Spring after the final frost with a slow release fertilizer that's high in nitrogen and phosphorous. We recommend using formula 10-10-10 or 20-20-20.

I have a weeping willow tree, in the spring as soon a the leaves are out they start turning yellow
and dropping off. we have had a lot of rain this spring but its dropping leaves. I would appreciate
your advise on what to do. ? This tree is about 10 years old and still growing.
A shopper on Jun 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: If the leaves are curling upwards your tree isn't getting enough water. If the leaves look heavy and droopy and turn dark yellow to a brown or black before they fall off then your tree is getting too much water.

Fertilize your Weeping Willow with a slow release fertilizer, we recommend formula 10-10-10 or 20-20-20.

Check your tree for any signs of a fungus or pests.

How far away from the house should a willow tree be planted? Any trouble with the roots to the foundation?
Helen B on May 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: A willow tree should be planted far away from the house because the roots will reach for the foundation in search of water. However, if you have a pond near the house, then the willow could be planted next to it. We planted our weeping willows very far away from our home, near some kind of wetland spot, and they are doing very well. They also grow fast.
Good luck,

Will a weeping Willow damage home foundations?
A shopper on Jul 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Any tree roots can damage foundations. If planting a Willow, do Not plant in the vicinity of the home's water or sewer pipes. Older pipes of clay encourage root penetration (seeking moisture) and can lead to expensive damage. Newer pipes are less easily damaged by root penetration, but can still be unleveled/cracked by earth upheaval due to roots wrapping around seeking coolness/warmth in changing seasons.

will willow trees grow in Nevada with 100 deg heat?
A shopper on Oct 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I live in New Jersey. So, I cannot tell you with complete certainty if a Weeping Willow tree is right for the climate in Nevada. I watered the tree daily the 1st year we placed it in the ground, It was 6ft tall when we received it and it is approximately 15 or 18 ft tall now. We purchased the tree in October 2012 and had the gardener transplant the tree into a large planter to survive the winter.

If you do purchase this tree you will need to water it daily especially given the climate in Nevada.

A shopper on Aug 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Mine was 5 feet when I got it, a year later it's about 12 feet. Not sure but I think they mature at around 60 feet.
I order this tree in late July and planted shortly after arrival. The tree is doing great and I have had to trim it several times. The issue is, the tree is not growing up as described. Its branches are growing out at a fast rate. Do I need to trim the branches and why would the tree not be growing taller?
Joshua M on Oct 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The tree is just getting settled in and established. They tend to grow out before growing up. I would give it until next spring, then you should start seeing it grow taller

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
