The Weeping Willow tree, Salix Babylonica, is a rapid growing yard or landscaping tree. When mature it exhibits graceful wide spreading branches. The Weeping Willow has pendulous weeping branches, a short trunk, and has a broad rounded crown. This deciduous tree has leaves that are thin and narrow, sometimes with whitened or silky undersides. It also is used in low moist areas like creek banks or areas that are very moist. It is one of the first trees to leaf out in the spring and one of the last to drop leaves in the fall. The foliage is a shimmering light green color in summer and turns yellow in the fall. The Weeping Willow trees are mentioned many times in literature and poetry from the time of Shakespeare. The usual reference is to shimmering leaves. It is graceful, grows fast, and adaptable.
