Weeping Willow (Salix babylonica) is a good-sized deciduous tree with a stout trunk with a broad and rounded crown.  Its branches sweep downward to the ground. Bark is gray to black. This weeping willow is a spectacular specimen at the edge of a pond with its branches weeping down to touch the water. Catkins appear in April-May, but are not showy. Narrow finely toothed leaves 6” long and 3/4” wide are light green above and gray-green beneath. Variable fall color is usually an undistinguished greenish-yellow.
