Why plant Blue Weeping Alaskan Cedar?
Almost as if it's dancing, Blue Weeping Alaskan Cedar has so much graceful movement to it. Dressed in blue-green needles on decadently weeping branches, this pyramidal evergreen stands out in the landscape. Adding unique charm, texture, and character, bringing your garden to life! Plant this mid-sized beauty near boulders, gravel, stonework, or water features for a picturesque vignette you'll love to glimpse outside your window every day.
Most trees native to the Pacific Northwest look out of sorts when made to live in less pampered conditions than they’re used to. Not Weeping Alaskan Cedar. Though at home on the cool, mild, rainy coasts of Alaska, Washington, and Oregon, it performs surprisingly well in the East and Midwest. It never attains the size here that wild ones do on the West Coast, but who has the space for a 100-foot-plus tree anyway? Weeping Alaskan Cedar brings that lush Northwest look to the landscape without getting out of bounds.
How to use Blue Weeping Alaskan Cedar in the landscape?
The Blue Weeping Alaskan Cedar adds a whimsical charm to any garden space or landscape that it's planted in. Weeping branches resemble a waterfall of blue-green evergreen beauty! Plant this evergreen tree to bring a quaint cottage-like feel to your space.
Hardiness Zone: 4-7
How To Plant Blue Weeping Alaskan Cedar
Weeping Alaskan Cedar likes lots of sunshine, though in areas where summer highs are often in the 90s, it appreciates some afternoon shade. Growth is best when given regular water, but not so much that the ground remains soggy for hours. Its roots are rather shallow, and this tree should be planted in a site that is sheltered from strong winds. Snow, it can handle. Alaskan Cedar was designed to shed precipitation of all sorts. Snow can’t grab onto the waxy sprays of foliage, hanging in long branchlets straight down.
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 when needed in late winter. Prune only when necessary to keep the natural beauty and form of your Alaskan Cedar.
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!
