This is a collection of grafted weeping standards known for their stunning autumnal colour or feathery green foliage. All are grafted to a general height of betrween 1.5-1.8m and offer year-round interest with seasonal variation and beautiful bare limbs in winter.

If your landscape design pallet is more about standard feature trees offering flowering contrast particularly in spring, maybe this collection of flowering grafted weepers will be more of interest.

For more information on either type of weepers we grow, please call the team on 03 9554 2000 or reach out here.
