Weeping White Spruce

Weeping White Spruce

Our weeping white spruce stands sentinel in our hillside display bed. Beyond it, the sugar maples have accepted the end of summer, and lost their luster. The beginning of their showy transformation is at hand, and the deep green of the weeping white spruce makes that all the more obvious. The graceful strength of the weeping white spruce creates a unique and interesting architecture! Its weeping branches of blue green needles fall elegantly from its strong, straight trunk. These branches create layers of dense evergreen needles, perfect for songbirds to take cover and nest.

Plant them alone as a single specimen or in small groups in varied heights to give your planting a natural feel. Weeping white spruce beautifully lends itself to wind breaks and screening.  Their weeping habit keeps branch breakage from heavy snows to a minimum!  Their mature size of 20-30′ tall and 4-6′ wide accommodates landscapes, yards and sites where a standard spruce would be too large. Plant them in full sun and well drained soil. Once established, they can handle drier conditions.
