WEEPING WILLOW

 

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 specimen tree that is always in high demand.

This willow is one of the fastest growing shade trees, growing up to 10 ft. a year.

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.
