The Weeping Willow Tree is named for its different limbs, which split into long, thin stems that hang down in a sweeping fashion. Its leaves are olive green on the top and silver on the underside. It survives in most areas, except extremely hot and extremely cold climates within the U.S. Ample amounts of water are required for it to thrive, so they do well when planted in close quarters to ponds or streams.
