Weeping Willow Tree Description

Weeping Willow Trees, Salix Is An Excellent Landscaping Addition To Gardens With Its Arching Branches

A weeping willow tree is a medium to large deciduous tree with a stout yet sturdy trunk topped by a graceful broad-rounded crown of branches that sweep down to the ground. As an excellent addition to gardens, willows range in size from thirty to sixty feet and spread up to about twenty to thirty-five feet of graceful arching branches. The leaves of these trees are slender and oval-shaped. While they are mainly ornamental because of their pendulant components, willows have various uses, especially in woodcraft, food, and medicine.

 

Weeping Willow Trees and Salix Are Famous For Their Elegant, Dramatic, and Graceful Appearance

This tree is mainly native to China and had a lengthy trade history along the Silk Road to Europe, and it has been repopulated in North America. This tree is famous worldwide for its unusual weeping branches. Its scientific name, salix, derives from salicin, a chemical in the plant's leaves and bark metabolized into salicylic acid, providing temporary and otherwise short-term relief to headaches, muscle or joint pain, menstrual cramps, rheumatoid arthritis, and many more.

Salicin is one of the ingredients in aspirin, derived from Felix Hoffman's creation of acetylsalicylic acid. Willows are famous for their dramatic and elegant appearance, and their long, graceful branches "weep" into an arch, creating a round canopy that gently touches the ground. The narrow leaves are light green on top, with silvery undersides until they turn yellow in autumn. The bark is rough, gray, and ridged, and the willow's branches' downward sweep associates the plant with the more gentle and inward aspect of human emotion.

This tree is resilient; some varieties will even re-root from cut-off branches. Although they are best in full sun with access to plenty of water, the weeping willow will add gentle peace to the yard where it roots itself. As willow trees serve as hosts for many insects, weeping willow care increases as they grow. Caterpillars and borers feed on their bark, and care for a willow includes monitoring its branches and foliage. Willows require moist, well-drained soil and around half a day's sun. While willows tolerate almost any soil, even coarse sand to fine silt loams at pH 6.5 to 7.5, they can be sensitive to pollution. Propagation of willows can be just as easy as plucking a stem and placing it in a moist medium, upright like a miniature tree, as the willow carries a hormone that will give rise to the term "rooting hormone."
