Enjoy This Fast Growing Romantic Shade Tree


Everyone loves the familiar Weeping Willow tree (Salix babylonica). Its graceful, ground-sweeping branches are easily recognized by all. Best known for its romantic and magical appearance the Weeping Willow has so much more to offer.


It is one of the fastest growing shade trees. With a growth rate of 8-10 feet a year it will quickly reach its mature height of 30-50 feet. It can be grown in most of the United States and adapts well in many soil conditions.


The Weeping Willow tree loves water and is often planted near ponds to prevent erosion. There is no such thing as too much water for a Weeping Willow tree. If you have a spot in your yard that stays wet or collects water, the Weeping Willow will help dry it right up.


While it loves water, the Weeping Willow tree can be grown just about anywhere as it does have some tolerance to drought.


Spring comes early when you have a Weeping Willow; it’s one of the first trees to leaf out in the spring.  It’s also one of the last to lose its leaves in the fall. You will love its narrow, sage green leaves swaying in the breeze through the summer. In the fall you will be delighted by its golden yellow leaves.


Plant the Weeping Willow tree in your yard to experience how this mystical tree has caught the attention of artists and storytellers for hundreds of years.
