Weeping White Pine


The Weeping Eastern White Pine has soft blue-green needles borne in groups of five. It is typically seen from 6 to 12 feet tall in landscapes growing slowly, with long weeping branches which touch the ground. Once on the ground, branches grow along the ground like a creeping ground cover.

Trees must be trained to develop a central trunk, otherwise the plant simply forms a sprawling shrub about two to three feet tall. Several branches on young trees normally are trained to originate from the same point on top of the trunk forming a fountain of foliage.
