Why plant Weeping White Spruce?
Is there anything better than planting a tree in your landscape that catches the eye of every passerby? Frankly, no! That's why you should absolutely consider the Weeping White Spruce. Naturally bringing along an earthy organic feel, this charming evergreen provides a peaceful atmosphere to whatever space it's planted in. Gray-green, sage colored foliage sits on pendulous branches, while the trunk stands sturdy and strong. As an added benefit, it's slender enough to fit in smaller garden spaces and its charming nature will keep your interest all year long!
Because Spruce trees are native to Europe, it’s not surprising that many of the dozens of selections of this species originated there—some of them quite a long time ago. The Weeping White Spruce was discovered in France in the 1860s. It was found to be a spontaneous mutation from the great White Spruce. Smaller, upright, and weeping it was described as 'pendula,' translating to 'pendulous or weeping.'

How To Plant Weeping White Spruce
White Spruce asks for few inputs from you. Give it well drained soil and full sun and it’s a cinch to grow. No serious pests bother it, and even deer have to be mighty hungry before they’ll touch it. Compared to other evergreen trees, Weeping White Spruce has attractive blue-green needles that make it a soothing neutral complement to the colorful play of other plants’ blossoms and foliage.
How To Water
Water twice weekly for the first 3-5 weeks; then water weekly for the remainder of the year until winter. When you water, water very slowly and very thoroughly. The water needs to reach to the bottom of the root ball and that takes time. Watering needs may be altered due to extreme weather conditions.
How To Fertilize
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant Food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant Food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. If planting in the fall, use Elements Fertilizer while planting and start your regular annual fertilizing the following fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established as it gives your tree the nutrients it needs to produce lush new growth for the following spring.
How To Prune
Prune in late winter as needed. For best results be sure to maintain a single leader.
How Does Shipping Work?
Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our large trees require expert delivery and care, that means our large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care.
We deliver your trees and plants directly to your driveway or curbside! Ask Bower & Branch about planting services and rates – we'd be happy to assist in installation.
*Big trees, Size XL (A) and bigger, will take approximately 2 to 4 weeks days to be delivered. - Sizes large (AA) and smaller (Treelings) will be shipped directly to your home by a local common carrier in a plant-safe box.
How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
