Salix sepulcralis Chrysocoma

The Golden Weeping Willow tree, Salix sepulcralis Chrysocoma, is the world's most popular ornamental weeping tree and the only weeping willow with golden-yellow stems. It is a vigorous plant that thrives on waterlogged soil and needs plenty of sun. Salix sepulcralis Chrysocoma has a stout, gnarled trunk when it is mature, with quite stumpy main branches that end in radiant showers of hanging, golden-yellow stems. It looks fabulous in spring, when the young leaves are still small and pale yellow-green and the yellow catkins are visible. The leaves turn green in summer and then back to yellow in autumn. Weeping willows have a variable final height range. In general, trees on sheltered sites will be taller. So expect the finished article to be between 12-20 metres.

Browse our variety of willow trees or see our full range of garden trees.

How Standard Trees are Measured: All our standards, are graded by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level (basically, their trunk's waist measurement). They aren't measured by their height, which will vary. So, a 6/8 standard has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8 centimetres and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10 centimetres around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height. Standard trees are 2.5 - 4.5 metres tall (on average) when they arrive; they are the most mature trees that you can buy from us.

History & uses of Salix sepulcralis Chrysocoma.
