Sophora japonica 'Pendula,' also known as the Weeping Japanese Pagoda Tree, is a stunning ornamental tree, notable for its graceful, weeping branches and delicate, compound, pinnate foliage. Its native region is China and Korea, but the "japonica" name stems from its extensive cultivation in Japan. It typically reaches a modest height of 15-25 feet, making it suitable for smaller landscapes. The tree blooms in mid to late summer, producing clusters of creamy-white, pea-like flowers that are fragrant and attract pollinators. The blossoms give way to slender, pendulous seed pods in the fall.

The tree's foliage is deciduous, exhibiting a bright green color during the growing season before transforming to a pleasing yellow in autumn. The weeping habit of this tree, combined with its intricate leaf texture and attractive floral display, make it a compelling focal point in the landscape. It is hardy and adaptable, tolerating urban conditions and a range of soil types. However, it prefers well-drained soils and a sunny location. Sophora japonica 'Pendula' is cherished for its unique form, aesthetic appeal, and minimal maintenance requirements, offering year-round interest in the garden.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
