The Weeping Willow – Golden Niobe (Botanical Name: Salix Alba Niobe) is a picturesque specimen tree known for its gracefully weeping golden branches. It reaches its finest form when overhanging water, making it stunning in waterfront landscapes. However, it requires plenty of wide-open space to achieve its mature size and shape. It's essential to note its tendency to drop branchlets and its aggressive root system, making it unsuitable for planting near homes.

This Weeping Willow is prized for its highly ornamental weeping form. It boasts rich green deciduous foliage that turns a striking yellow in the fall. Its glossy narrow leaves and furrowed brown bark provide visual interest year-round. The gold branches are especially showy and add significant winter appeal to the landscape.

This deciduous tree with a weeping form thrives in full sun and requires consistently moist soil. It prefers acidic, well-draining soil and is suitable for Zones 4 to 8. With a rounded form, it grows to a mature height and width of approximately 50 feet. Its blooming season occurs in spring when it produces charming blooms, enhancing its overall allure.

Overall, the Weeping Willow – Golden Niobe is a stunning addition to any landscape, especially those with waterfront views. Its elegant weeping branches and golden foliage provide beauty and charm throughout the year. However, its size and aggressive root system require careful consideration when selecting its planting location.
