Who doesn't recognise the weeping willow? This weeping willow has its own island in the water. How cool is that!

There is something special about this tree. The name of this Willow tree is subject to change. It is a cross between the native Willow Salix Alba and the Chinese Weeping Willow.

First, the tree was called Salix Alba 'Tristis', Then, it had to be called Salix Babylonica, without the Tristis behind it. Today this French crossbreed from 1815 is called Salix Sepulcralis 'Chrysocoma' .

This characteristic tree is regularly planted in villages and towns. Frequently in parks and cemeteries. If the soil is moist and nutrient-rich, the tree can reach a height of 20 to 25 meters. Sometimes reaching the same circumference. In winter, the thin yellow twigs that hang down vertically stand out. There are no remarkable flowers on this beautiful city tree.
