Weeping Willow Tree

Ideal near Streams and Ponds

One of the most eye-catching willows we've found! Growing 30-50 ft. tall with a similar spread, this large, deciduous tree has branches that gracefully sweep downward to the ground and sway in the breeze. The Weeping Willow grows best when planted in a sunny location with medium-wet to wet, well-drained soil. It's a spectacular choice for planting along the edge of a pond or stream Plant in full sun to part shade. Deer tend to avoid. Zones 4-9.
