Some of the best trees to create a big impression in the landscape are weeping trees. With their graceful branches that droop downward, they're very eye-catching and make an excellent focal point. One of the most popular weeping trees are the Weeping Willows. These fast-growing shade trees can grow up to 10 ft. in a year. Their blue-green leaves turn golden in the autumn—and they thrive in moist and dry locations. If considering a weeping tree for your yard, make sure it is suitable for your hardiness zone. Next consider its mature height and spread, sunlight and soil requirements, water needs and maintenance needs.
