Weeping Beech

To get a European beech weeping, just add "pendula" to the end of its name.

The leaves of Fagus sylvatica pendula are just like those of its non-weeping counterpart.

Not only are the branches pendulous, they are slightly contorted.

The cemetery has many weeping beeches, but the most enchanting one hangs over Larch Avenue.

To continue up the road, you have to walk (or drive) under the canopy.
