Growing and Maintenance Tips:


One of the most popular of the weeping willows available, its value lies in its golden weeping form. Grows well in wet locations, and has a very large mature size.  Care needs to be taken in siting these trees: they suffer from weak wood, so wind and ice storms may lead to damage and litter.
