My favorite horticulture is naturalistic, so I am not in love with any mutated trees that are weeping, contorted, prostrate, or really different from the mother species. However, I occasionally see one of this cultivar of Eastern White Pine planted in yards and landscapes in the Midwest or Mid-Atlantic. There are some nurseries that specialize in selling lots of various mutated cultivars of woody plants, and some conventional nurseries that sell this plant. This Weeping White Pine is sort of expensive to buy. It grows about 1 foot/year.
