Weeping trees evoke feelings of serenity. There’s something about their picturesque forms that calms us when we’re in their presence. The rhythmic rise and fall of their limbs speaks to us in soothing tones. The gentle sway of their branches in the breeze is the epitome of grace. Weeping trees bring an air of romance to the landscape. They are pure poetry. Here are six weeping trees that will bring elegance to your landscape with their flowing forms, whether you have a spacious estate or a modest lot.
FEATURED WEEPING TREES:
PINK HEARTBREAKER® REDBUD – HIGH FORM
Cercis canadensis ‘Pink Heartbreaker’ PP 23,043
Pink Heartbreaker Weeping Redbud will surely win your heart like it has ours with its flowing form, its sweet heart-shaped foliage, and its perky pink flowers which hug the branches in spring. Growers love Pink Heartbreaker because its strong branching habit makes it less likely to get broken up during shipping than the older weeping Redbud selection, Lavender Twist (a.k.a. ‘Covey’). If errant soccer balls occasionally find their way into your landscape beds, then you’ll appreciate that strong branching, too! You’ll also love Pink Heartbreaker’s super-fast growth rate and its compact size. There are very few specimen trees that grow fast but don’t get too big, and this is one of them.
