Growing & Maintenance Tips for Salix alba 'Tristis'

One of the most popular of the weeping willows available, its value lies in its golden weeping form. Grows well in wet locations, and has a very large mature size.  Care needs to be taken in siting these trees: they suffer from weak wood, so wind and ice storms may lead to damage and litter.
