Weeping willow

Salix babylonica

If wet soil challenges your green thumb, then the graceful willow is your tree. Fuzzy winter catkins, colorful bark, contorted branches, and delicate foliage are just a few of the many bonuses of growing willows. They're especially dramatic located near a pond. Prune weeping willows in winter or spring to bring out their beauty. Avoid planting willows in damp places, such as over septic tanks, where invasive roots could become a problem.
