Focus on plants - Weeping Giant Sequoia
The Giant Weeping Sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum 'Pendulum') is not for everyone – some clients call it “Cousin It” or “the Doctor Seuss Tree”, while other clients call is magical, whimsical, ghostly or fun. One thing for sure -- it is different!! This tree tends to look quite symmetrical when young - but it changes drastically as it ages. This evergreen tree has a very distinctive shape, as no two trees are alike. The general size is approximately 25’ tall with an approximate width of 4’. The tree can develop “arms” with a length of up to 10’ in length.
This is a great tree for people who like to stand out and make a statement - if you like symmetry and order – run for the hills, this tree is not for you!! The soft, evergreen foliage adds to the interest of this truly unique tree. If you are looking for an evergreen tree for a sunny spot, that is just a little different, why not try the Giant Weeping Sequoia!!!
