Hi Brian, that doesn't look like a weeping willow, but the species is irrelevant. Fancy varieties of willow, variegated ones and drooping ones are grafted on to a stronger growing willow. The variegated ones aren't strong growers on their own roots.
If the bit below the graft puts out shoots they will be much stronger and take over.
