I recently saw a weeping pussy willow tree, something that I have not come across before. What would be the perfect spot for this tree-in relation to exposure of light etc..?

Willows of all types grow best in full sunshine and will tolerate average to wet garden soils. Salix caprea 'Pendula', the weeping pussy willow, will grow to a height of 8' with branches that reach the ground. Provide ample water during spring and summer, and prune annually to promote new catkin bearing shoots.
