PLANT SPOTLIGHT: Alaskan Weeping Cedar
Chamaecyparis nootkatensis ‘Pendula’ is known for its dramatic foliage. It stands out in the landscape with its weeping branches and unique form. This is a must have plant in your landscape.
This evergreen tree is slow growing, typically getting about 30’ to 40’ high with a spread of 10’ to 15’. Despite an upright growth habit of the trunk, rich green colored, scale-like foliage dangles from the branches, giving this tree it’s weeping look. These weeping branches form a pyramidal shaped tree.
The Alaskan Weeping Cedar grows best in partial shade. It does better protected from strong winds. It looks great planted as a single specimen but also looks nice grouped together as a screen or in a mass planting.
