Weeping Willow

WEEPING WILLOW.

Salix Babylonica The weeping willow, much planted in cemeteries and parks, came originally from Asia and is remarkable for its narrow leaves that seem fairly to drip from the pendulous twigs. (See illustration, page 55.) The foliage has a wonderful lightness and cheerfulness of expression, despite its weeping habit.
