I had already given a thumbs up, but couldn't help posting. And hopefully you won't take this the wrong way. That plant is so cool. I'm guessing that it's not hardy here in Indiana (though I didn't look). I'd want to get one, but have never seen it around here.

But it reminds me of Thing (I think it was called) on the Adam's Family. Smiling Cool to have it in your yard!

Funny, Teresa! Actually you could have one in your yard. They're fine down to zone 3. I might have to see if I can find one. It's so unusual, and I love all weeping plants.

Hilarious! Hilarious! I agree Yes, Cousin It. I thought the same thing but I was immediately drawn to it. It's so unique, I've never seen one. Thanks for sharing it and I like the way you have trimmed it.

Hahaha....came to post that it's more like "Weeping Cousin It" than "Weeping Lurch".

But someone beat me to the Addams Family jokes...

Good one Asa! Hilarious!

I hadn't ever heard of Sia, anyone with me, here's a quick link. Mine viewed with Microsoft Edge browser showed her current dooo (hair-do), if we are speaking of the same.

I wonder about seed production of weeping larch. Most trees (unless they have been hybridized, and selected sterile cultivars), produce seeds in one form or another. Would love to try starting from seeds. Wildflowers (here on the forums), generously sent me seeds from American Beauty Bush and I have 3 babies started. It will be interesting to see how long it takes to maturity.

As for weeping larch, probably at the major garden center, I bet they are expensive. Might be one I'd add anyway. I'll probably start looking for it at places like Lowe's and Menards, plus the major nursery (nursery only).
