Comments: The primary feature of this special selection is the weeping character that makes it a special accent element in the landscape. As plants grow older they produce a striking sculptural quality with weeping branches and an interesting trunk. Growth is quite slow. Provide a well drained soil and full sunlight for best growth. Autumn color can be rather striking most years.
