    The trees arrived in great shape no broken branches and roots well packed. They were dormant upon arrival but started to bud within 72 hrs of planting.

    Love it

    Posted by Andrea on 22nd Jun 2018

    Ordered this tree several months ago. Bought the 5-6 foot version and it was "bent" in half when it arrived, so I was a bit concerned. It had some leaves on it. Planted it on my property with a stake to straighten it. Several months later, the tree is flourishing! It's grown significantly (I tied a bow on the tree where it met the top of the stake so I could see if it grew taller). It's grown taller, lots of new branches, and full of leaves. I absolutely love it and can't wait to watch it get bigger and bigger!

Description

Weeping Willow Tree-  Salix babylonica is One of the Fastest Growing Shade Trees

Weeping Willow Tree is native to Northern China and is one of the fastest growing shade trees, usually growing over 24 inches per year. As a sapling, the tree starts as a thin trunk with few branches. As it grows, the branches grow up and then curve downward, which forms the canopy. It is supported by a stout trunk. This deciduous tree grows great by water and is even able to absorb standing water. Although they grow exceptionally well by lakes and rivers, they can adapt to other soil types, including sandy, moist, acidic, clay, and many others. The weeping willow is a thriving water tree, and it's branched drapes to the ground when mature. This tree is a very fast growing one, and it's also majestic enough to plant in upscale landscape designs.

 Weeping Willow Tree is a Magnificent Addition Beside Brooks to Help Prevent Soil Erosion

Yellow to silver-green blooms appears in April and May. The leaves are 6-8 inches long, light green, and narrow. Leaves are also long-lasting, often being one of the first to produce leaves in the spring and last to lose its leaves in the fall. During the fall, leaves turn yellow before falling to the ground.

1/4 inch brown fruit grows on the leaves, but produce little to no litter. The tree usually lives for about 30 years.

  The magnificent Weeping Willow Tree (Salix x sepulchral or Salix babylonica) provides an excellent addition to the shores of ponds and lakes. Environmentalists sometimes plant this tree in clusters beside brooks, so their vigorous roots systems will help prevent soil erosion. Some 400 different species of willows exist today, ranging in size from shrubs to towering trees with arching, overhanging branches. 

 A Historically Important Plant

  People have cultivated willow trees for thousands of years. The plant's bark contains ingredients which ultimately contributed to the development of aspirin, a necessary over-the-counter pain relief medication. Some butterfly species rely on the willow as an essential food source. Additionally, many cultivars of the Weeping Willow Tree provide vital seasonal nutrition for honey bee colonies during early Spring. (In parts of North America, some willows begin developing leaves as early as February.)

 The Weeping Willow Tree: Visually Stunning

  The Weeping Willow Tree possesses a characteristic appearance. It creates an umbrella-like canopy, its limbs covered with hanging leafy branches that arch outwards distinctively from the trunk. Leaves develop laterally along every branch; no terminal buds form. The light green foliage assumes an attractive yellowish-gold color during autumn. 

 Growing Conditions

  These rapidly growing trees survive from Zone 3 through Zone 10. They range in height from 50 to 82 feet. Most varieties endure between 40 and 75 years.
