Go Back Cedar Weeping Alaskan

Chamaecyparis nootkatensis
Rock Garden Icon

Plant Type: Conifer Shrubs

A medium-sized evergreen tree (20 – 40 feet in cultivation) with a wide, pyramidal form and numerous drooping branches covered with long, flattened sprays. The evergreen foliage is dark bluish green or gray-green and persists for three years, though it sometimes turns brown in the second year. Unlike most species of Chamaecyparis, the leaves of the Alaskan cedar have no white markings on their undersides. The Alaskan cedar is sometimes confused with an arborvitae but can be distinguised by the distinctive drooping branches. Cones are fairly small and numerous although solitary, and they ripen the second year.
