A popular golden weeping willow, Salix alba 'Tristis' is a large deciduous tree boasting a stout trunk topped by a graceful open crown of pendulous, brilliant yellow twigs that hang towards the ground. In the spring and summer it bears narrow, finely toothed, bright green leaves that turn yellow golden during the fall. As the weather turns cooler the leaves fall to the ground to reveal the spectacular silhouette of the tree. This weeping willow makes a spectacular specimen tree near ponds and streams where it can reflect in the water for double the viewing pleasure. Easy to grow, easy to care for, and deer resistant it is often regarded as one of the best weeping willows. Add it to your landscape today for a dramatic statement.
