Weeping Japanese Hackberry Photo: 1-15-10

Celtis sinensis ‘pendula’ Weeping Japanese Hackberry. The smooth bark and wonderfully pendulous branching of this fast growing tree makes it a great addition to a larger garden. The tree in the photograph is about 20 years old and is about 25 feet wide by 8 ft high. Early training is very important for this tree. If you want a taller structure it is necessary to stake up the new growth up a bamboo stake to the desired height. The leaves are small to moderate in size and turn gold in the fall. Winter interest is high due to the sinewy look to the trunk and major branches. This tree can fairly easily be rooted under mist from summer semi-hardwood cuttings treated with rooting hormone. Placing this tree where it can be viewed from some distance is effective due to this trees sprawling nature.

  1. I kind of disagree, but I do see your point.

  2. You raise many questions in my head; you wrote an excellent post, but it is also mind provoking, and I will have to think about it some more; I will return soon.

  3. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance. I must say you have done a excellent job with this. In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Safari. Excellent Blog!
