Sophora Japonica Pendula or Weeping Japanese Pagoda is a deciduous tree native to China and Korea which has been cultivated in Japan for centuries. This is a picturesque small tree with a graceful weeping shape & stiff, drooping branches which remain bare until late May. The narrow pinnate leaves then emerge, up to 30 cm in length, covering the weeping form with a blanket of rich green and then turning a pale yellow in autumn. After a hot summer, mature specimens of Sophora Japonica Pendula may produce fragrant, creamy white flowers similar to pea blossoms. The drooping panicles of flowers emerge in late summer into the early autumn, providing a good late-season source of nectar for bees and butterflies.
Height and Spread of Sophora Japonica Pendula
The Weeping Japanese Pagoda tree will grow to a height of just 4 metres and spread of 3 metres in 20 years, reaching a mature height of up to 6 metres in 30 to 50 years. This tree will last for many decades.
How Hardy Is Sophora Japonica Pendula?
Weeping Japanese Pagoda is hardy in most places in the UK, even in severe winters.
How to Use Sophora Japonica Pendula
Weeping Japanese Pagoda is an excellent specimen tree for even small gardens, as its slow growth habit and eventual small size will keep it within the bounds of a restricted space. Weeping Japanese Pagoda is a good focal point in a small lawn, or as an accent in a larger garden. Planted above a retaining wall, its branches will grow down and soften its appearance.
How to Care for Sophora Japonica Pendula
Sophora Japonica Pendula is adaptable to many different planting situations. Plant it in full sun in with any aspect in an exposed or sheltered position, in well-drained sand, chalk, or loam soil. As it is very resistant to salt spray, it is an excellent choice for a coastal property, and it is equally tolerant of pollution, making it suitable for even inner-city gardens. It develops drought tolerance once it is established, and in fact will suffer if there is too much moisture in the soil.
Sophora Japonica Pendula is an excellent choice for UK gardens - small in size, with a graceful ornamental form, it will fit into spaces small or large! See also Sophora Japonica - non weeping form.
