The Weeping Alaskan Cedar is a spectacular vertical tree, that shoots up like an arrow to the sky, reaching 10, 20 and eventually 40 feet in height, while staying incredibly narrow, with weeping side-shoots almost clinging to the main trunk. This dramatic specimen is normally only available to specialists, yet it is easy to grow all across the country, and it needs no special care, staking or trimming at all. Grow this plant as a specimen in a lawn or among rocks and gravel, perhaps with other spectacular evergreens. Use it to literally lift your planting to another level, and create a powerful exclamation mark that will really catch the eye and increase the appreciation of your garden. It can even be grown for years in a container or planter, and wherever you plant it, this remarkable plant will thrill you – and everyone who sees it.

  • Spectacular vertical accent that shoots for the sky
  • Weeping side branches add to the dramatic effect
  • Ideal narrow form for smaller spaces
  • Hardy to at least minus 30 with no winter browning
  • Easy to grow in sun or partial shade

Plant your Weeping Alaska Cedar in a sunny or lightly-shaded location. It will benefit from some afternoon shade in hotter areas. It is winter-hardy down to at least minus 30, so it can be grown almost anywhere – all the way into zone 8. It will grow in any well-drained soil, from sand to clay, and it is drought-resistant once established. It has no significant pests or diseases, and this plant will become a wonderful feature in your garden, while asking nothing from you in return – an offer you can’t refuse.
