Salix pendulina 'Elegantissima' - Thurlow Weeping or Wisconsin Willow

An elegant pyramidal weeping willow with a narrow conical crown, this choice tree is also hardier than some of the other weeping hybrids. According to Christopher Newsholme, in Willows, The Genus Salix, It will look best grown as a specimen in an open area near water, where the wind will blow through the long pendulous branches.

Description: large tree; 15 m (50'); glossy brown annual growth; bark is deeply fissured; long narrow leaves

Conditions: full sun in open exposed area; tolerates a wide range of conditions and soil types; needs ample water to fully develop

Coldest zone: 4 (find your zone; further info on plant hardiness)
