The Willow is a deciduous tree characterized by its long and sweeping branches.
Growing more than 2 feet each year, it blooms with yellow tubular flower clusters in the late winter and early spring. It is a very hardy plant that can be grown as far north as Alaska and as far south as Florida.
Because they can reach up to 50 feet, they must be given a wide area of land to grow into, away from sewer drains, septic systems, or water lines.
Their roots can be aggressive, actively seeking the nearest water source and at times spanning wider than the tree is tall. In addition to that, they seek out the nutrients in the soil around septic systems, making the roots even more dangerous if not planted in the right area. Native to China, they prefer areas with full sun and partial shade slightly acidic soils.
