Full Answer

The pink flowers of the cherry willow tree appear in spring. Once the flowers die and fall to the ground, the dark green, 3-inch lance-shaped leaves become visible. In the fall, the leaves turn a yellow to red color and small ebony fruit appears.

The cherry willow adapts well to various soil and moisture conditions and requires full sun. This tree has a mature spread of 15 to 20 feet.
