Beautiful tree that has been occasionally planted at estates, parks, botanical gardens, and arboretums in the US and some of southeast Canada. Slow growing of about one foot per year so it takes a long time to really look good.

This is one of the most dramatic trees for use in a landscape. Give it lots of space as plants get quite large. The weeping habit can be appreciated year-round.
