Fast Growth and Classic Grace

Sweeping, low branches and a familiar, falling canopy. The Weeping Willow is a favorite among tree lovers for its dramatic appearance and rounded, weeping shape. 

Plus, it's perfect for those looking for character and classic looks, adding value to their property. The Weeping Willow is an excellent shade tree that's always in high demand.

And it's one of the fastest growing shade trees, growing up to 6 to 8 feet in one year. Willows start out thin, with only a few branches that point upward against the trunk. But after growing quickly to a height around 10 feet, they burst forth with more and more branches that arch outward, forming the weeping canopy that makes them famous.

Even better, the Weeping Willow thrives in growing zones 4 through 9, and has the ability to absorb standing water. Plant your Willows near trouble spots where water stands in puddles, and watch those water issues disappear.

Though Weeping Willows are often found near rivers, lakes and wetlands, they can grow just about anywhere, even demonstrating some tolerance to drought. They're highly adaptable to all kinds of soils and growing conditions, even helping to prevent soil erosion.

Best of all, your Weeping Willow will be the 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, it's known for its excellent green hues during the spring and summer and boasts virtually no tree litter.

The Weeping Willow: mentioned in many poems, songs and stories because of its grace and beauty. Order one (or more) of your own today!

The tree was kinda small when I recieved it. It's stilll small, but appears to be healthy and growing. It's really too early to tell how it will ultimately look or even whether it's going to thrive, but I'm hopeful it will eventually look like the picture of this full grown tree. Meanwhile, stay tuned...

Planting & Care

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

Weeping Willow Planting Diretions

The weeping willow, (Salix babylonica) is a species of willow native to dry areas of northern China, but cultivated for thousands of years elsewhere in Asia, often being traded along the Silk Road to southwest Asia and Europe.

It grows rapidly, but unfortunately has a short lifespan. The shoots are a yellowish-brown, with small buds. The leaves are alternate and spirally arranged, narrow, light green, with finely serrate margins and long tips; they turn a gold-yellow in autumn. The flowers are produced early in the spring.

Seasonal information: The weeping willow is a medium- to large-sized deciduous tree, growing up to 40 feet tall; with growth throughout the year but encouraged in summer by warm climates. They grow well on most continents.

Location: You should plant your weeping willow in full sun or partial shade at least 35 feet from your septic system or leach field. Weeping willows develop an aggressive root system that gravitates to water. Tiny roots will infiltrate the smallest crack and quickly fill your septic system, clogging or splitting pipes.

Planting instructions:
1) Dig a hole three times the width and just as deep as the root ball on your tree. Then remove any debris like rocks, grass or soil clumps from the hole and use a shovel or a pitchfork to loosen the soil around the sides of the hole.
2) Place your tree in the hole and make sure that the root collar, or area where the roots meet the trunk of the tree is level with the surrounding ground. Then make sure your tree is standing straight up. If you aren’t sure if your tree is straight or not, use a level.
3) Next, gently back fill the soil and tamp it down. After this process is complete give your tree a long drink of water until the soil becomes moist.
4) Spreading a layer of mulch that’s about three inches thick around the base of your tree will help the soil retain moisture and prevent weeds from growing.

Watering: You should regularly water your weeping willow for the first year to keep soil evenly moist. Water your weeping willow only during dry periods in successive years. Although weeping willows prefer moist soil, they adapt easily to drier soil.

Fertilization: Fertilize the soil of the weeping willow using fertilizer that contains nitrogen after placing the tree in the hole parallel to the ground. Fill the hole with planting soil or the original ground soil, mixed with fertilizer. Avoid applying fertilizer directly to the tree. Choose a brand that has equal parts of each chemical component, such as Miracle Grow 10-10-10 or 20-20-20, or a similar product, for optimum results. Applying fertilizer that contains nitrogen produces greener, lusher plants, and accelerates growth. Wear protective gardening gloves to reduce the possibility of scratches or cuts from tree roots or branches.

Weed Control: Control weeds to keep them away from weeping willow. Keep them at least two or three feet away from the tree, especially when it is young. Use mulch, but not herbicide, to control weeds to keep the tree healthy.

Pests and Disease: Like any tree, the weeping willow is also victims to pests and diseases. The gypsy moth is an invasive species that originally came to the United States back in 1869, but it soon got out into the environment and began breeding and killing weeping willows, as well as a host of other trees. A fungus called Venturia saliciperda is responsible for causing willow scab. Willow scab is a disease in which the fungi infect new or young leaves and cause brownish or black lesions on the leaves. Another disease affecting weeping willow is crown gall, caused by the bacteria Agrobacterium tumefaciens.

Pruning: Air circulation is key for weeping willow pruning. Weeping trees in general develop a thick cluster of branches that can become top heavy or be susceptible to environmental damage from snow or ice. Thinning cuts down on the likelihood of this damage. Thinning the crown increases air circulation, which pushes wind through the tree instead of pushing the thick cluster of branches around, and also keeps disease away. A good rule of thumb is 2 inches between branches at the top of the tree.

Aside from thinning the canopy, you need to trim back branches so they do not drag on the ground. Clip branches back by several inches to maintain the weeping form without having branches drag on the ground, where they could pick up disease. Side growth on the tree detracts from its form. Pinch or clip off nubs that grow from the trunk to maintain the weeping shape, where all branches grow up then fall. Also clip off broken branches, dead branches, or diseased wood to maintain tree health.

Nick F on Dec 11, 2018
We had a tree service come out to trim our Weeping Willow tree and he hacked off just about everything on it and its over 20 years old, and when we asked him why he did that and he said he trims them all like this and that the branches will grow back real quick since this is the beginning of summer, So is this true or false?
kathryn s on Jun 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this is true. My willow was blown half over (it was about 40 ft) and landed leaning on a wooden fence. My husband set to work to chop it up, since the root ball was mostly exposed. Then we noticed after a few days that the remaining leaves were still alive. But it was indeed mostly bald.
Hubby pulled it with a tow strap back into it's hole in an upright position. He attached the strap then onto an older maple tree to keep it upright. We watered it a lot.
Sure enough, the next spring it sent out shoots. In a total of 3 years since it's falling it has finally returned to it's full graceful glory at 40 ft.
I'm thrilled because this was (is) my "tree-zebo". I have a swing under it and the long branches fall gracefully all around the swing. It's kind of hidden and no one can see you in there. I watch the neighborhood from my swing under this beautiful tree hearing the swish of the wind in it's branches.

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: Agree you are over watering it or either feeding it too much to cause that . if you have alot of water in the yard that tends to stay around in the yard I suggest to raise the plant higher with a mound with good mulching I had so much rain this spring it almost drowned mine so I had to build a higher mound to keep it from driving and yellowing. Made a huge difference trust me. I would not feed it until summer or until you noticed the colors in the leaves is asking you to feed it

Will the willow grow in clay soil?
sue c on Jul 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes! I have clay soil! I live by a tristate and our ground is clay and sandy soil.. I have bought many trees worried that I am just spending my money to find out they will die cause of my soil... I planted it last fall out in the open and we had a harsh winter (Nebraska weather) in the spring I was soooo happy to see it thriving! It is now July and I have really notice the trunk getting thicker and the tree getting taller! This has been te best trees so far that I have planted! I just bout a weeping cherry this year and will see how that one does! So far also this year my wisteria is doing well also but I never talk to soon as I wait all winter to see if it survived! But my weeping willow is far the best one and looks very healthy! Hope this helps!
We have a weeping willow tree in our back yard and the bark is splitting and peeling from the trunk. Is this normal?
Warren on Oct 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: That is not normal for Weeping willow at all. It may be a willow borer, they tunnel though the inner layer of the bark, causing the bark to crack and split. Look for signs of the borers in swelling branches and piles of sawdust, prune out any diseased looking bark or branches and spray the tree with permethrin to kill the borers.
Will planting near a well be a problem ?
Richard R on Apr 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, willow trees roots will push themselves forward into the well over years and cause damage.
Can you buy and plant them anytime in the year? I'm in Houston Texas. Magnolia really.
Andrew Sarah E on Jul 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I live in NJ so this may not be the best answer for your different planting zone. Planted ours in I believe May and used the fertilizer pills that I believe came from this supplier. Did use better earth than our sandy/clay soil and the first year did water it about once a week. For the past two years it has done fine on it's own. We live on a Bay so the tree does get hit with wind and that has retarded its upward growth a bit but am planning to buy several more and will probably plant them in the Fall.

Very easy to plant as long as you have a decent shovel. Not a big production!
can you trime them back every year?
COWBOY on May 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, trim them in the late fall or early winter.

What time of the year in alabama is the best time for planting the weeping willow?
virginia f on Dec 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Planting in fall/winter/early spring, while they are in their dormant stage helps them get their roots, established without having to give nutrients to the rest of the tree. Also, with extra care you can plant in the summer, by planting in the evening after the sun goes down, so it will not get leaf burn. Giving it extra water and putting a 3-4 inch of mulch (keeping a few inches away from the trunk) to help retain moisture during hot dry weather.

Belinda P on Oct 20, 2015

how do i get the roots to grow down instead of on top of the lawn ?
gail hardin on Aug 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: When watering, make sure to water at the base of the tree instead of over the canopy. The roots will search for water, the deeper the watering the deeper the roots will go.

I really want to have a willow at my new home. I had one at the old house, but beetles got to it. Is there any way to keep this tree from growing too large? I have a pool and would like to keep the roots from damaging the pipes or pool but the lot is only large enough to allow me to plant the tree 10-15' from the pool cage and house.
Sharon E on Jun 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Since willows are water seekers, I would not recommend planting near a pool. I would plant at least 35 feet away from the pool and house.
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

I want to plant a weeping willow in Salmon Idaho, this is August, should I wait to buy in spring?
Birdie on Aug 21, 2018

We didnt see alot of growth in the first year but the second year it took off and the trunk is at least double the thickness and has grown several feet taller.
Do Willow trees like a lot of sun?
Laura on Mar 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Mine is in very bright sun and yet is not growing all that rapidly because it's on a bay where the wind makes it difficult for most trees to even survive. My willow tree, however, is doing well and obviously is going to make it.

I purchased mine to replace one we lost during Frankenstorm Sandy and I found the first following Spring that I really did miss its beauty and the shade it provided. It's a lovely tree and again can take very tough weather. Waiting right now to see what this Spring will bring!
We live in Florida just inside the zone for this tree. We have Sandy soil. Will this tree grow alright here?
Mickie H on Sep 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, at the time of planting I would just amend the soil with some good planting mix.
Will Willow tree grow in soggy soil?
Laura on Mar 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Best bet is to google that question. Willows like moist soil, like along river banks. You might think about cypress trees. The bald cypress is a really good tree for shade and relatively fast growing. I have both. Cypress has good shade in summer and allows sun in winter - on the South side.
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,

BEST ANSWER: I live in Texas. Planted spring 2013. Has grown about 5 ft tall. Was only about 1/2 ft when I got it. Takes lots of water.

Shipping Details

Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however some orders may ship in 1-2 business days (we do not ship on the weekends) from date of purchase.

Shipping Alert:

You can still order, but due to cold weather, we have delayed shipping to the areas shaded on the map below. We want your new plant to thrive right out of the box, so we will wait on shipping your order until the weather is ideal. This includes anyone in Growing Zones 3, 4, or 5. If you are unsure of your growing zone, visit our Growing Zone Finder.

We will resume normal shipping in the Spring. Please see the table below for your approximate ship date.
