Prairie Cascade Willow
Fast Growing, Graceful Shade Tree
Weeping Willows are like the ballet dancers of the tree world. They are graceful and refined and move beautifully. They conjure up the most romantic scenes from movies and paintings. They make you happy just looking at them.
Prairie Cascade is a stellar form of willow. It starts growing strong and straight like a soldier, but as it ages it begins to form the ‘weeping’ habit you want in a willow. The fine texture of the leaves stand out in contrast to most other thickly-leaved trees and plants in the landscape.
The forest-green leaves are beautiful all season, but one of the standout qualities of Prairie cascade is that in the fall its leaves turn golden yellow and when they drop, the stems stay yellow – a beautiful beacon in the dark, gray landscapes of winter.
Like all willows, you want to choose it’s site carefully - a strong storm can send limbs flying and healthy roots like to look for water pipes – but the sheer beauty of this tree outweighs most homeowners objections.
Prairie Cascade Weeping Willow will unquestionably be the star of your landscape. What are you waiting for? Order yours today!
