Create a focal point, add a bit of elegance or interject some whimsy into the garden with weeping trees and shrubs.

This blue rug juniper was grafted onto a sturdy stem and elevated from sun loving ground cover into a weeping specimen. The steely blue foliage turns plum purple for winter.

Grow the tree form of Russian cypress in sunny or shady garden locations. The lacy foliage turns coppery brown in winter.

Another shade lover is weeping hemlock.  The horizontal layered branches form a mound of greenery that combines nicely with other shade loving plants.

The Weeping European hornbeam makes a shapely and graceful specimen in the landscape.  The trees form, yellow to orange fall color, and smooth gray bark provide year round interest in the landscape.

This slow growing purple-leaf weeping beech is the perfect size for smaller scale landscapes.
