Abies concolor

'Gable's Weeping'

Gable's Weeping White Fir

Tree has greenish-bluish-grayish needles. Does not really weep that much, but looks like wind swept the branches. It's stems and bark are a mustard color which actually contrast very nicely with the needles. The 3- to 5-inch cones are greenish-purple when young, turning brown.

Full sun, Very hardy down to zone 4 and good into zone 7. Propagated in Oregon.

Albizia julibrissin

'Pendula' 

Weeping Mimosa

We found this selection at Ishii Nursery in Japan. It is a strongly pendulous form which may reach 8-10' with age. Showy, pink flowers appear in July. Very adaptable plant, being tolerant of moisture and wind. Full sun will provide best flower production. Zones 6-9. Grafted on A. julibrissin seedlings.

We have had bad propagating luck with the Albizias the last four years, so be patient.

'Summer Cascade' PPAF

Summer Cascade Weeping River Birch

This new selection was found as a chance seedling at Shiloh Nursery. It is a very fast grower reaching perhaps 25'; but we really don't know since the parent plant is still young. It has beautiful, exfoliating bark like the species, and it is very tolerant of difficult sites. Yellow fall color. Zones 4-9. Rooted cutting.  Propagation of this tree is restricted to those registered, a patent royalty has been added to the purchase price.

Cedrus deodara

'Glacier Blue'

Glacier Blue Himalayan Cedar

"In stark contrast to the typical upright fast growing deodara, this plant is different with its flat to mounding growth habit. 'Glacier Blue' is a name worthy of its color which complements its moderate growth rate, long needles and spreading, pendulous habit."

- taken from Iseli Nursery website

Grows without staking to only about 5-8 feet tall in ten years, can be staked for a more tree-shaped weeping effect.  Full sun to partial shade.  Grafted on Cedrus deodara seedlings.  Zone 6-9.

Cedrus deodara

'Silver Mist'

Silver Mist Himalayan Cedar

 

A newer introduction from British Columbia. One of the lightest colored Deodar Cedars with soft, silver-white foliage on pendulous branches. Able to tolerate most sunny sites without burning, but would prefer afternoon shade. Silver Mist grows only 6 inches per year. After 10 years it may only attain a staked height of 6’ and a width of 2’-3’. On better sites, full-sized mature plants may eventually exceed 10’.   Full sun to partial shade.  Grafted on Cedrus deodara seedlings.  Zone 6-9.

Cercidiphyllum japonicum

'Morioka Weeping'

Morioka Weeping Katsura

This selection is somewhat similar to Cercidiphyllum japonicum ‘Pendula’ but the overall growth habit will be taller than broad. It is a vigorous grower and can reach 40-50' with a spread of 20-30' over the course of it's considerable lifetime.  Expect its growth in ten years to be 15 to 25 feet tall with a slightly less spread.  This is not a tree for the small garden, but spectacular when given the room.  As a young tree 'Morioka Weeping'; will grow vigorously with strong vertical growth and be only moderately weeping. As it matures and the growth rate slows, plants will exhibit the weeping form more strongly. The new spring leaves emerge with reddish-purple cast and quickly take on a lovely blue-green color through the summer.   In the fall, the leaves gives off a spicy, cinnamon aroma as they turn a golden-yellow color. Full sun or light shade. Needs adequate moisture until established, but then quite adaptable in zones 4-8. Either propagated by cuttings or grafted on C. japonicum.

'Amazing Grace'

Amazing Grace Weeping Katsura

Another discovery by plantsman Theodore Klein; ‘Amazing Grace’ is a strongly pendulous form of Katsura with blue-green foliage. The foliage also offers a spicy, cinnamon aroma as the leaves turn a golden-yellow in autumn. It was appropriately named by Bob Hill of Louisville, Kentucky (Courier Journal/Hidden Hill Nursery). It will grow to 20’ with a 20-25’ spread in 25 years. Needs adequate moisture until established, but then quite adaptable plant in zones 4-8. Full sun. Grafted on C. japonicum seedlings.

'Tidal Wave'

Tidal Wave Weeping Katsura

This outstanding new selection was made by Bill Barnes from Lorax Farms, for vigor and blue-green foliage. We have found it to grow more quickly than the other forms of Cercidiphyllum. The habit and culture are otherwise similar to C. japonicum ‘Pendula’ and C. japonicum ‘Amazing Grace’. Perhaps 20' by 25' in 20 years.  Needs adequate moisture when young until established.  Zones 4-8. Grafted on C. japonicum seedlings.

Chamaecyparis nootkatensis

'Pendula'

Weeping Alaskan Cedar

"This graceful tree can reach thirty feet in height, and may serve as a foundation or specimen tree, or in a screen function if planted in a row or cluster. While sparsely branched in youth, it fills in with age and is a true investment for mature landscapes."

- taken from a previous Plantfacts page, Ohio State University website

They say it so nicely, we'll let them speak for themselves! It's a fairly fast grower. Height: 35 to 50 feet, Spread: 15 to 20 feet. Full sun, Zones (4)5-7

Cornus kousa

‘Lustgarten Weeping’

Lustgarten Weeping Kousa Dogwood

*This form exhibits abundant flowers along the stems that can be readily seen. The habit tends to be slightly broader than tall with height reaching 6-8’ tall with a 10’ or greater spread. White flowers typical of the species in June. Full sun or light shade. Selected by the late Jim Cross at Baier Lustgarten Nurseries, New York. Possibly a sister seedling to C. kousa ‘Elizabeth Lustgarten’. * (Dirr p. 263)

Will thrive in either full sun or light shade. Zones 5-8. Rooted cutting or grafted on Cornus kousa var. chinensis.  It was our late dog's favorite tree!

Fagus sylvatica

'Pendula'

Weeping European Beech

 "I have never seen one I didn't love and no two are exactly alike.  A most beautiful weeping form, sometimes the branches are horizontal for a distance and then turn down forming a large tent-like mass.  Other trees have a central leader from which the branches hang down at various angles." 

-Dr. Michael Dirr, Manual of Woody Landscape Plants

Slow to medium grower, 8-10' in a 10 year period, but to 50' over the lifetime of the plant with a spread about 40'.  Fall color is russet, copper to yellow-brown.  Full sun/part shade.  Grows best in the northern zones 4-7, grows slower in the heat of the south.

Forestiera angustifolia

'Pendula'

Weeping Texas Swamp Privet

Forestiera is a somewhat uncommon plant from the Oleaceae family (which includes Forsythia and Ligustrum among others).  Native to Texas, this selection has very unusual green flowers on a strongly weeping shrub. The flowers appear in March and early April along the stems prior to the emerging green leaves.  Pendula is deciduous, with smooth gray bark and pendulous branches.  It will form a mounding shrub 5-6' tall with a slightly greater spread.  Certainly a 'fool your plant friends' plant.  Propagated by rooted cuttings.  Zone 6-9.

We've lost our source on these, but have them listed just for information purposes. Hopefully we'll get some in the future!

Ginkgo biloba

‘Ross Moore’

Ross Moore Weeping Maidenhair Tree

This cultivar was brought to us by Ross Moore, Moore’s Natives, Lenoir, North Carolina who found it in a clients’ landscape. Ross tells us it is strongly weeping, unlike the other ‘Pendulous’ forms floating about in the trade that are merely horizontal at best. We’ve yet to see the parent plant, but the plants we’ve grafted from Ross’ scions display a strong weeping tendency. They also exhibit the excellent golden-yellow fall color typical of the species. The ultimate height is anyone’s guess. 10-15’?? The sex? Again, anyone’s guess. Time will tell. Grafted on G. biloba seedlings.

Gleditsia triacanthos

'Emerald Kascade'

Emerald Kascade Honeylocust

This selection has an irregular, mounding habit with dark green foliage. Unstaked plants will form a wide-spreading groundcover up to perhaps 6-8' with 12-15' spread. We suggest staking for a season or so to make a small weeping tree around 8-10' tall by 8-10' wide in a decade.  Watch your fingers though, this one has short spines like the species although they are a bit smaller.  Yellow-gold fall color. Zones 4-9. Grafted on G. triacanthos seedlings.
