Grounded weeping willow

Just wondering ,
do weeping willow's leaves ever grow down , past the ground?

The ones I see at the mo'
their branches and leaves are just touching the gorund..

have you ever seen one with branches and leaves splayed out on the ground?

I don't think I have seen willows with leaves trailing on the ground, but I have never really looked for that. Good question! I have seen them trail leaves in water such as a pond or river, though, so maybe they will trail leaves on the ground?

thanks Kits

yes, I have seen them drape into the water too...
but never more than an inch or two on the ground.

seems strange too having leaves so near the ground, as most? tree have them way up out of the reach of hungry hipsters and other dopey animals

I wonder if anything would climb up them ?..or would fungii have an easier path into the tree via the leaves..

Cheers
Liam
