Pinus strobus 'Niagara Falls'
Found as a sport of the well known weeping form of Eastern White Pine, Pinus strobus 'Pendula'. The selection boasts a fuller, more dense pendulous tree that will flow down and 'mimic the action of a roaring Niagara Falls. It must be staked up to the desired height, as it will then grow out and down, with abundant secondary buds which flush out to create an exceptionally lush structure. Will grow 4-6 inches per year. Found in 1998 by Hickory Hollow Nursery in New York, and in 2009 was chosen as the Collector's Conifer of the Year by the American Conifer Society.
