The weeping willow - Ships 1-3 Feet in Height

Green weeping willow tree is an enormous tree that is known for its slender leaves and long branches. Its leaves are the first sign of spring and start to appear as early as February. Yellow flowers also bloom on this beautiful tree around April and May along with a type of brown fruit. These trees are easy to root and multiply sometimes they even grow up to 24 inches a year!  You can find weeping willows either alone or in groves near large bodies of water. They can mostly be located in hardiness zones, and they thrive in some different soils and moisture conditions. Some of the soils the weeping willow can be found in include: acidic, alkaline, loamy, moist, fertile, sandy, well-drained and clay soils. This tree adapts well because as I stated earlier, it usually lives near water; however, it can very well sustain itself in drought conditions. It is important to note that this tree should be grown in full sunlight! While it needs sunlight to thrive these trees can be great when looking for shade and add such grace and beauty to any landscape they are a part of. A fun fact about the weeping willow is that while it is beautiful, it is also beneficial! It produces salicylic acid, which was the model for our modern day aspirin. One thing to remember when trying to decide whether or not you want to have this type of tree is that it is not a lot of maintenance. By this, I mean that they do not shed a lot, so there's not much to clean up as with other kinds of trees.
