Weeping Hemlock

An elegant evergreen with cascading branches

This evergreen will provide your yard with color all year, while providing a spectacular unique look. The branches on this evergreen grow upwards, then curve towards the ground in a weeping display. The cascading branches create a mounded look, found on other deciduous weeping trees that lose their leaves.

The weeping nature of this tree allows it to grow into the perfect elegant hedge, providing privacy from the neighbors. Other flowering trees and shrubs will pop against the green branches that gracefully brush the ground, the needles on the branches will also provide a textured backdrop, attracting the eyes of all your neighbors to your landscape.

Due to the compact nature of this tree they can fit anywhere. Only growing 10 to 15 feet tall they make for the perfect accent tree. If left unpruned these trees can grow 15 to 30 feet wide, making them perfect to plant along boundaries as wind and noise screens.

Weeping Hemlocks are extremely cold hardy. Winter temperatures and heavy snows won't harm this tree, plus its weeping branches provide refuge for wildlife in even the heaviest blizzards. These trees are also able to survive in a variety of poor soils, drought conditions, and wet yards. Once planted this weeping hemlock will provide beauty for generations.
