Description

If you are in search of a Weeping Willow Trees for sale online, then you have landed in the right place! Willow trees are one of the most recognizable trees due to their classic, rounded shape and long thing branches which droop to the ground creating a striking appearance unlike any other. They are deciduous trees composed of ground-sweeping branches that are full of long, narrow leaves with silver tinted undersides. In the fall these leaves will become yellow and eventually drop.

Weeping Willow trees reach an average size of 30-50′ H x 30-50′ W at full maturity. With a fast growth rate, you can expect upwards of 24" of growth yearly in optimal conditions. These are lovely trees with a graceful appearance and are wonderful additions to large scale gardens and landscapes. Weeping Willows are sure to attract plenty of attention and are useful as screenings or as a specimen.

Weeping Willow Tree Care

  • Hardy from USDA Zones 4-10. You may find Weeping Willows anywhere from the Lakesides of northern Michigan to the swamps of central and south Florida.
  • Place in a location that receives full sun and has soil that is consistently damp. These are the ideal conditions for the Willow and will have the strongest impact on its overall health and longevity.
  • Weeping Willow Trees are tolerant of most soil types, even clay. Easy to establish in soils that are both acidic and/or alkaline.

Do Weeping Willow Trees require large amounts of water?

There is no other way to say this, but YES, they do require large amounts of water. Most gardeners agree that Weeping Willows are best suited near a fresh body of water due to the nature of their roots which aggressively seek out water whether that be sewer lines or septic lines.

For the first year of planting your willow will require watering weekly. To help encourage the roots to establish themselves in the soil. Water your newly planted tree every other day for several weeks. After that, watering the tree once a week should be sufficient.

Pruning your Weeping Willow

Pruning should be done in January - March. Snip branches back as this will trigger the sprouting of new branches and bring fresh foliage to the forefront. There is no need to prune severely, but a light trim annually will be beneficial to the tree's health and appearance.

Disclaimers:

If your tree is over 46" inches tall at the time of shipping, we will have to trim it to fit into our boxes.

Customers Outside of the Southeastern United States: Shipping these trees over long distances during the Summer is not recommended, please wait to order during Fall to Early Spring for best results.

Care & Use

Getting Started: Understanding Your New Plant

Review your plant's information on our website or the tag that comes with it. Be mindful of sunlight preferences, soil type, and spacing needs.

Our plants are adaptable but grow best in the correct USDA Zones. Click here to learn more about your USDA Zone.

Planting Instructions

Dig a Hole

First, dig a hole three times the width of the root ball of your plant. This makes it easier for the root system to spread out quickly. Dig the hole deep enough that your plant will sit level with or slightly above the ground around it.

Amend Your Soil

Mix your native soil with rich gardening soil to provide extra nutrients and support plant growth. If your soil is clay-heavy, we recommend mixing your native clay soil with equal parts of Pine Bark mulch to improve drainage and the overall breathability of your soil.

Place Your Plant

Examine the roots. If they appear tightly bound, gently coax them apart; this ensures they can spread into the new soil. Place your plant in the hole so the top of the rootball is even with the surrounding soil—Backfill around it with the amended soil mixture. The roots need access to oxygen for your plant to thrive, so do not cover the rootball; place soil around it.

Mulch Your Plants

Top the soil beneath your plant with 3-4 inches of mulch to help it retain moisture. Be careful not to cover the rootball - your new plants roots need access to oxygen.

Water Your Plant

Soak the plant with a hose afterward to hydrate the plant, as well as get the soil and mulch situated. Develop a regular watering schedule based on your plant's needs and local weather patterns. Remember, over watering is just as, if not more, harmful than under watering.

Spacing Recommendations

Willow Trees require adequate spacing, usually between 30 to 50 feet. This allows the tree to mature into its natural form.
