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.

STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
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.

Plant your Weeping Willow in loose soil and in a space where it will have plenty of room to grow. Water regularly until it is established. Weeping Willows need little to no fertilizer but do need regular pruning to keep the tree in a desirable shape.
