Устойчивость к ветру:
Very lovely weeping willow; young trees still have an oval-shaped crown. As the tree ages, pendulous branches develop that hang down increasingly. Eventually, a broad, weeping solitary tree develops in this way. The trunk turns greyish black and is deeply grooved at a later age. The young, pendulous twigs are green and bare, with powdered tops at first. Two-year-old twigs turn brownish green. The bright green leaves are lanceolate to linear. The underside is greyish green. Young leaves have silvery hair, older leaves become bare. The leaves are 7 - 14 cm long and 1.2 cm wide. The leaf edge is finely serrated. The tree blooms as the leaves are emerging, with pale yellow catkins approx. 5 cm long. Saplings especially are sensitive to frost. As trees are just leafing out, they can sometimes suffer damage from night frost as well.
