Pinus strobus 'Pendula' / Weeping Eastern White Pine

Pinus strobus 'Pendula' is a loose weeping form of white pine that requires staking to obtain the desired height. It will then continue weeping and form a large mound.

Needles are generally abundant, long, and Blue-gray to Blue-green in color. Branches often growing in a sweeping form. Will eventually become a large tree and makes a fantastic and elegant form for the garden that has the room for it.

Pinus strobus 'Pendula' Specimen at Secrest Arboretum in Wooster, OH. This specimen is actually 2 separate plants that have been brought together to create an arc for visitors to pass into the shade garden. Nice effect.

Example of foliage on mature specimen This is an example of the branching and foliage habit of this plant. Due to its weeping nature staking at a young age may be necessary to give the plant height.
