Willow - WeepingSalix babylonica
USDA Hardiness Zones: 5-9
Often when one envisions a quiet body of water, the graceful, elegant form of a Weeping Willow is seen at the water’s edge, the long, light green, pendulous branches reflected in the water, gently swaying with each little breeze. The Weeping Willow is a majestic deciduous tree with green, weeping foliage. Though it does well in very moist soils, Weeping Willows may also be successfully used as a fast-growing specimen or screen in drier, more open areas where it should receive regular watering to prevent leaf drop in a drought. It will survive drought but loses some leaves without irrigation. Ultimately reaching a height of 35 to 45 feet with an equal or greater spread, Weeping Willow should be given plenty of room to develop its broad, rounded crown. Zones: 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9.

How to Plant
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
So far so good! The willow tree came in the mail in excellent condition. Super fast shipping as well! My tree went through double shock. The first shock happened from planting it (expectingly) and then the second shock happened because Oklahoma had a random freeze two days later. All the leaves fell off and I was sure it died but leaves are growing back!! I am super excited to see this tree flourish.
Very healthy and just 2 weeks later it has new growth all over!
My trees were delivered in really sturdy boxes. although one had a broken branch, I was able to mend it !
these trees immediately started to pop out new foliage ! I am very impressed with the quality !!!!
Great Job, everything looked great. Thanks
The willow tree is doing great and was healthy when delivered!
