The Story

A 2009 selection for Collector's Conifer of the year. Discovered by Hickory Hollow Nursery, New York in 1998.

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 Niagara Falls 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.
