Willow Trees

Willow Trees are serene and tranquil and will make your landscape look amazing and unique. Here are some amazing varieties to try out in your gardenor landscape area this year. The Weeping Willow Tree is a top choice and one of the most popular. This tree will grow best in climate zones three through nine and will be anywhere from forty-five to fifty feet tall and as much as thirty-five feet broad, depending on conditions. It can grow an astonishing eight feet per year if the conditions are just right. This tree can also grow in a variety of soil conditions with ease and can even tolerate some moderate drought conditions if needed. It will appreciate a full sunlight environment to reach its potential. The branches and foliage on this tree are quite surprising. The branches will droop and sway with the wind, and the leaf is an unusual green coloration. It is great for privacy because of its dense growing nature and will be something different. The Black Willow tree is another great selection. It will grow three or more feet each year and is fast becoming. It can grow in a broad range of soil conditions but prefers those that are moist and wet in their compositions. It will grow best in either a full or partial sunlight environment. It will also produce tiny yellow blooms during the spring and summer months of the year called catkins and will catch your eye. The Black Willow is also known as the Silky Willow and loves water. This would be an excellent tree to plant near a lake, pond or another body of water. It will require a lot of water to grow well and can even grow in soils that do not have good drainage. Willow trees will also help with erosion problems and will transform your landscape into something relaxing and unique in its appearance.
