• Description

    'Pendula' is a weeping evergreen conifer which assumes many different forms depending on how it is grown and pruned. It is often used as a collective name encompassing all weeping hemlock cultivars, including 'Sargentii'. Typically grows 4-5' tall with a spread of 8-10', but, depending upon how it is pruned, may reach 10-15' tall at full maturity. However, with regular pruning, it can be limited to a 2-3' mound of weeping foliage. Flat, dark green needles to 1/2" long with two whitish bands of stomata underneath. Thimble-like, light brown cones to 3/4" long may appear on older plants. Michael A. Dirr considers this weeping form to be "one of the most handsome of all conifers."
