Willows are compatible with a large variety of pHs and soil types and grow best in moist locations. Weeping willows are easy to grow, and they do so at an astonishing rate. They typically grow anywhere from six to eight feet a year. These trees are known for having thin, long, slightly jagged leaves. There are a few variations of a willow tree that have a blooming pattern, and they are pussy willows, weeping willows, and black willows. These bloom patterns run down the whole length of the branch, creating a cascading wave of color. Colors range from white to yellow to pink to purple and so many in between.

Due to its propensity to absorb water, weeping willows will rid areas that collect standing water after rain showers making them an excellent addition to low land properties. With their long sweeping branches, willow trees can provide the perfect amount of shade and appeal to anyone’s home or business.
