Some plants are similar to others, and don’t have a very distinct personality. The Weeping Giant Redwood is the opposite – a tree with massive personality – so much so that no two trees every look the same. Each one develops in its own way, with a unique pattern of growth. First it grows upright, then it loops over in a full circle to grow downwards. From that loop new shoots develop, so hanging vertically down like a curtain, but one will grow up some more, before circling over again to repeat the process. The result is a spectacular, narrow upright tree, but with curtains of cascading branches hanging downwards. It can reach 25 feet or more, while remaining just 3 to 4 feet wide. Even as a young tree it will charm and fascinate you, and the longer you grow this tree the more dramatic it will become. In the evening it will look like a friendly ghost, in the day like a cleverly-trained Zen masterpiece, but it needs nothing special from you to develop in this unique way.

  • Dramatic weeping form in a narrow upright tree
  • Soft grey-green evergreen foliage
  • Every tree becomes a unique individual
  • Perfect by water or in an Asian-style garden
  • Easily grown, yet eye-catching and rarely seen in gardens

The Weeping Giant Redwood grows best in a sunny spot in ordinary well-drained soil. Keep it well-watered when young, and do not let it become completely dry for long periods as an established tree. It grows best in areas with good rainfall that are not too hot and humid in summer. It has no pests or diseases and it is normally not eaten by deer. The only care is to provide a stake to encourage it to grow upright when young. This unique tree is rarely available, so it really is something very special.
