Weeping Eastern White Pine
Pinus strobus 'Pendula'

Of all the types of Pine trees you can have in your yard, we think Weeping White Pine is the most fun.  This funky conifer can be trained to grow straight up and cascade down gracefully like a waterfall, but most free-form Weeping White Pines take on the look of a fluffy, huggable, green Mr. Snuffleupagus.  Branches veer this way and that, all clothed in long, soft needles that never scratch or poke.  Few weeping evergreen trees are as easy to grow as this non-conformist Pine tree, either.  It has the same simple needs as our common native White Pines—it’s just in no hurry to get to the top of the forest!

The Story

Though the quirky Weeping White Pine might be a novel plant to most, it has been grown since 1866, when it was discovered in a British garden.  The Brits have long admired our majestic native Eastern White Pine and have grown it there since 1620—only they call it “Weymouth Pine,” for the bloke who brought the first seeds to the U.K.  Weeping White Pine is propagated by grafting, which means that all of the plants are identical to that first one.  Still, it seems that no two trees are just alike!

The Details

We may be a little partial, but this could just be the most graceful and interesting weeping evergreen out there. This vigorous grower branches out horizontally before cascading to the ground. Decorated with long, blue-green needles the Weeping Eastern White Pine is simply breathtaking!

How to Grow

Homeowners sometimes panic when they see yellow needles inside their White Pines in the fall.  This is perfectly normal and no cause for alarm.  Just because a tree is “evergreen” doesn’t mean its needles last forever!  However, brown needles on the outside of the tree are often the result of salt spray, so don’t plant this tree on the Coast, or near sidewalks that will be salted in winter.  Do give it room to become the sprawling, charismatic specimen that it wants to be.
