Salix x 'Niobe' Weeping Willow
Also known as Niobe Golden, this weeping willow produces a more upright weeping branch structure that starts out as a soft golden color deepening to a brilliant yellow bark during the winter months.
In spring, the Niobe Golden Weeping Willow white flowers develop as catkins much like those of the pussy willow. A beautiful flowering willow tree, the Niobe Golden will grow into the 50 - 70 foot height range with a spread equal in height. Should be planted in full sun away from all types of piping and foundations and no less than 40 feet away from any septic field lines. Best sited near or on water banks (moist to wet soil areas) where they can spread their long golden branches.
