Weeping Norway Spruce

 

Masonic Village, 1 Masonic Drive, Elizabethtown PA (near the formal gardens)

 

This is a spectacular example of a weeping tree.  "Every Weeping Norway Spruce has its own personality," garden association Bower & Branch has observed.  "If Pendula is untrained, it develops a weird, wacky and wonderful free-form shape."

 

This amazing species (Norway Spruce)  was the first conifer species to have its genome sequenced.
