September 26 - Weeping Willow - Salix babylonica

The Weeping Willow Tree

The Weeping Willow Tree

This incredible Weeping Willow tree lives at Camp Rockmont, where I am attending the SE Women's Herbal Conference. I had a class with Suki Roth today. She talked of the powerful medicine in the Weeping Willow.  We talked about how Weeping Willow vinegar can be prepared from the new spring leaves.

  1. I love weeping willow, it has so much movement that when it's hot out, you can feel refreshed by a slight breeze where as the stiffly held leaves of some dark red-leafed trees makes it seem hotter out.
    I've got a Copper Beech someone planted in my yard and the leaves take quite a wind to move.
