Weeping Willow – Gently Arching Beauties

Why Weeping Willow (Salix Alba 'Pendula')?

Salix Alba 'Pendula', often known as weeping willow, is native to arid regions of northern China; however, it has been grown for millennia in other parts of Asia and exported over the Silk Road to southwest Asia and Europe. It is a medium to large-sized deciduous tree, reaching up to 20–25 m tall, although it only lives between 40 and 75 years. It is a dioecious plant, meaning the male and female catkins grow on different trees. The blooms are collected in catkins produced early in the spring.

It is a typical tree in northern China, mostly planted to produce wood and shelterbelts, especially useful in the areas around the oasis in the Gobi Desert to shield agricultural land from the winds.

In the Chinese region, the bark of weeping willow is used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, fevers, and jaundice, while the leaves treat fevers, skin eruptions, and blood purification.

In addition to being a source of food for rabbits and deer, the branches of these trees provide excellent places for birds to nest. When planted near water, they can prevent soil erosion.

Pollination Information

Pollination of Golden Yellow Weeping Willow Tree (2-3 Foot) (Salix alba pendula):

Weeping Willow flowers are unisexual, meaning male and female flowers are borne on separate trees. The flowers are wind-pollinated and produce copious amounts of pollen. The small, green capsules that follow contain numerous tiny seeds that are dispersed by wind. Weeping Willow is an excellent choice for landscapes with moist or wet soils, such as near water bodies and in low-lying areas. The tree's graceful, weeping form and lush foliage add beauty to water gardens and pond landscapes. Weeping Willow also provides valuable ecological benefits, such as stabilizing stream banks and preventing soil erosion. Its extensive root system makes it suitable for soil stabilization projects. Conservation efforts aim to promote the responsible planting of Weeping Willow near water bodies and sensitive habitats to prevent invasive spread and protect native ecosystems. Sustainable landscaping practices prioritize the use of native willow species for their environmental benefits and habitat value for wildlife. Efforts to protect wetland habitats and restore riparian areas often include planting native willows like Weeping Willow to enhance ecological function and support biodiversity.



It is generally recommended to wait to fertilize a bare root plant until it has been established in the ground and is actively growing. This can vary depending on the type of plant and the growing conditions, but it is generally best to wait at least a few weeks to a few months after planting.

During the first year, you should focus on providing the plant with the right amount of water, sunlight and soil to help it become established. Once the plant has become established and is actively growing, you can begin to fertilize it.

You can use a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer or one that is specifically formulated for the type of plant you have. Be sure to follow the instructions on the fertilizer package and apply it at the recommended rate.

It is also important to note that over-fertilizing can be harmful to plants, so it's always best to error on the side of caution and start with a lower amount of fertilizer and increase as needed.
