Weeping Willow Tree
The 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 especially well by lakes and rivers, they can adapt to other soil types including sandy, moist, acidic, clay, and many others.
Weeping Willow Tree even have some drought tolerance. It should receive at least 4-6 hours of direct sunlight per day.
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 about 30 years.
Weeping Willow has a reddish brown color during the winter.
