For a long time, weeping willow was a tree rich in symbols. Even today, it is used in literature as an element that exudes poetry and elegance.
Originally from China, the weeping willow was imported to Europe in the late 17th century. Its ornamental nature makes it a tree very conducive to reflection and we often find the weeping willow at the edge of a lake. Its long drooping branches give it the name of "weeping" and we understand why: the tree really gives the impression of shedding tears. It also happens that water from the condensation flows from the leaves.

Despite the fact that this tree is found in large parks and near lakes, you can also introduce it into your garden - as long as you have enough space. Thus, you can arrange the space under the branches in a great corner of rest with two chairs or a wooden table to have a family lunch on Sunday.
