Weeping Alaskan Cedar

Chamaecyparis nootkatensis 'Pendula'

This plant is not available at this time through Bower & Branch. Bower & Branch provides this information for reference only. Please click here to be placed on a waiting list. See below for other selections.

The Weeping Alaskan Cedar tree is a graceful specimen evergreen tree with a flowy form that will bring to mind a past trip to Seattle or the movie set of Twilight (vampires not included). This elegant West Coast native conifer is admired for its distinctive swooping branches draped with soft sprays of sage green foliage that sway in the breeze. Plant this mid-sized beauty near boulders, gravel, stonework, or water features for a picturesque vignette you’ll love to glimpse outside your window every day. Why plant another (yawn) Arborvitae? Punch it up instead with this uncommon evergreen with style, grace, and personality!

The Story

Most trees native to the Pacific Northwest look out of sorts when made to live in less pampered conditions than they’re used to.  Not Weeping Alaskan Cedar.  Though at home on the cool, mild, rainy coasts of Alaska, Washington, and Oregon, it performs surprisingly well in the East and Midwest.  It never attains the size here that wild ones do on the West Coast, but who has the space for a 100-foot-plus tree anyway?  Weeping Alaskan Cedar brings that lush Northwest look to the landscape without getting out of bounds.

The Details

You will be weeping tears of joy when you add this outstanding tree to your landscape. The rich evergreen branches hang from this fabulous tree producing an outstanding weeping form. This Alaskan makes an excellent accent or specimen tree. Cary Award Winner from the Worcester County Horticultural Society for its outstanding performance, hardiness, and eye-appeal.

How to Grow

Weeping Alaskan Cedar likes lots of sunshine, though in areas where summer highs are often in the 90s, it appreciates some afternoon shade.  Growth is best when given regular water, but not so much that the ground remains soggy for hours.  Its roots are rather shallow, and this tree should be planted in a site that is sheltered from strong winds.  Snow, it can handle.  Alaskan Cedar was designed to shed precipitation of all sorts.  Snow can’t grab onto the waxy sprays of foliage, hanging in long branchlets straight down.
