Weeping Willow Tree
A Short Guide On: Weeping Willows
The Weeping Willow is one of the most recognizable trees in the United States, often seen in television shows and movies and known for its romantic, and stately appearance. This Willow is typically a tall tree with branches that hang loosely and gracefully. The leaves on Weeping Willows are green or yellow. This tree can grow up to 40 feet tall, and the average height is typically between 30 and 35 feet tall. Known by the scientific name Salix babylonica, The Weeping Willow is believed to represent “strength, flexibility, and fertility” and is known for the branches having the ability to bend without breaking.
The Weeping Willow can survive in a wide array of climates and soils and is a very flexible, durable, and amenable tree. Originally found in China, the Weeping Willow can now be found in the Middle East, Europe, and North America as well as its home country of China.
The optimal growing conditions for the Weeping Willow include being near water. The thirsty roots of Willows enjoy drinking up available moisture and prefer to be near lakes, rivers, and even ponds. The ever-adaptable Weeping Willow can grow and thrive in an abundance of different types of soil, and although this Willow loves moisture and water, it can stand to be in mainly dry climates and soil types.
A person interested in growing a Weeping Willow should know that it’s a natural tree to establish and can be grown from a cutting. Considerations for growing this tree include an understanding that while fully established Weeping Willows are highly adaptable, younglings need to grow near water and have access to steady sunlight. Furthermore, Willow roots can be quite fragile when growing although these roots will eventually grow deep into the soil and spread several feet past the length of the rest of the tree.
In conclusion, Weeping Willows are beautiful, shade trees that add a unique quality to everywhere they are planted.
