I just started several exciting adventures in zone 6. Looking forward to learning, collecting ideas, and trying new things.

Weeping willow with your tears running down, why do you always weep and frown? is it because he left you one day? is it because he couldnt not stay? on your branches he would swing, do you love the happiness that he would bring? he found shelter in your shade, we thought his laughter would never fade! Weeping willow stop your tears, there is something to calm your fears, you think death as you do forever part, i know he will always be in your heart! Emma Jane Rae #mygirl #willow #weepingpussyw

I love pussy willow memories of collecting it when I was small with my father. To put with mothers daffodils 🤗

@godfreye I'm loving this tree 🥰 And I always loved the weeping willow poem from the movie My Girl so I put them together 😁 That's cool that you have willow memories 😊 My parents weren't into plants. I discovered my passion at 40 years old 🤪

@txgardener I love it so far. Apparently they really need the seasons to do well. So they should be planted outside.

I found one that is of a dwarf variety online. I was planning on growing it outside. ☺

@kelsey92 I got one in Michigan when I lived there but it died 😔 I wasn't as knowledgeable about plants then so I'm hoping I can keep it alive this time. I might plant it out in spring 🤔 Did you keep yours in a pot or plant it outside?

These can grow to 8' tall & wide! They are normally repotted each year, protecting the pot from freezing overwinter or planted directly in the ground. Good luck with it! You have a beautiful specimen! 😍

Everyone here (Tx) grows them in the ground and they are spectacular.

@KariSamuel Thank you! I will pot it up now and then plant it outside in the spring. It says zones 4 to 8 and I'm in 6 so it should be good I hope 🙏 I just need to find a good spot for it.

@txgardener It's a really cool tree so hopefully it will survive 🙏 I will plant it outside since I'm running out of room inside 😁

@cheriej Don't be jealous yet, lol 😆 I will do my best with it 😉 But I really do love it 💕 It is beautiful 🥰

@cheriej I potted it up nicely today in some good foxfarm soil. It was root bound so I picked at the roots a bit. I read it likes lots of water. Hopefully it will be happy until I can plant it outside 😌
