Weeping Willows grow best in full sun, but will tolerate very light shade. Adaptable, they manage in soil that is either coarse with sand or gravel texture or fine with silt. They do not require good drainage, being comfortable in wet, boggy areas. Soil that is acid to neutral (pH 6.6 to 7.5) is fine.
Plant willows in any season, as they are easily transplanted. They have shallow, fibrous roots that establish themselves quickly
