Weeping Willow Tree provides a Marvelous Focal Point for any Landscape
The graceful falling habit of its branches forms a shade canopy that can reach the ground, creating an outdoor living room as much as 40 feet across. The willow’s branching habit for families with children also makes it a perfect climbing tree, with big forks and a stout trunk. They are tolerant to a wide variety of soil pHs, and these gorgeous and surprisingly functional trees are at home almost anywhere in the continental US.
Weeping Willow Has Earned its Place as a Favorite for its Whimsical Look
Their reddish-brown bark contains:
- A natural alternative to aspirin.
- Willow extracts for centuries to treat headaches and other mild pain.
Today, however, willows are more often used to treat boggy areas in residential landscaping and low areas prone to flooding and eroding riverbanks. Weeping willows thrive near water and tolerate salt.
Weeping Willow catkins appear late in the spring.
The leaves are deep green, long, and slender, with a silvery-green back. Catkins appear in late spring. The leaves turn late in the season in the fall, becoming a bright gold or green-yellow before falling. The delicate silhouette of a weeping willow in winter is as lovely as the tree in the whole summer. People have used its slender branches for centuries in various arts and crafts, including baskets, paintbrushes, and dyes for leather.
Fans of William Shakespeare or Harry Potter will find the tree especially appealing, as the weeping willow makes star appearances in both collections. With mythical connections stretching back centuries, the weeping willow has well earned its place as a favorite.
