Weeping white spruce is a very tall, narrow evergreen tree. It is a selection of white spruce, which naturally grows in the northern US and Rocky Mountains.
It has downward-facing branches that help it shed heavy snow loads. It can be great choice for narrow spaces where a tall evergreen is desired.
There is a large, mature specimen of weeping white spruce at the Xeriscape Demonstration Garden. As a specialty plant, it needs to be planted in a suitable location for its tall height and narrow width.
It has been maintenance-free for many years, never needing pruning or staking.
No maintenance required under normal conditions.
