If you have looked at dwarf weeping trees in their natural habitats, you will find that the majority are deciduous. This means that during the winter they lose their leaves and during the summer they bloom and shed their leaves. The beauty of these trees is that they look very unique due to the way they grow, so if you are looking for a suitable tree for landscaping use, it is advisable to choose the one with the characteristics you like the most – the dwarf jpeg or the larix dwarf weeping tree.
The first thing you need to decide on when considering dwarf weeping larch trees for zone 5b is whether to plant them in your yard, or if you want to put them in a container. If you are putting them into your yard, you should take into consideration what type of climate they will experience, as well as how much sun they need. Many varieties require a lot of direct sunlight, so look for ones that are designed to cope with this. If you do plant them in a container they will need to have holes drilled around their base and a draining hole inside to allow for the root ball to drain. Look for drainage plugs of at least 2 inches in depth.

The Japanese dwarf larch is a beautiful tree. It is named for its size when it first came to the United States. Its graceful shape makes it look like the weeping tree from Europe, but it is actually a different species. The Larch (Ulmus fulva) is an evergreen shrub native to Japan, Korea and China. In North America it is called Ulmus rubra and in Australia it is known as the white-lipped larch. The name “rubra” comes from the brownish black stripes that run across its branches.
In its native country the tree grows in large numbers as the leaves grow high, covering the tree’s body. When I was growing leaved trees I always had to remove a few leaves every year or so because they covered the tree’s canopy. If you have ever seen a weeping tree before you will know why I was so upset with myself. It was like I couldn’t see past them! I still love to watch these trees grow in my zone though, and there are some pretty big specimens growing at my site.
The last zone that is important for dwarf weeping trees is Zone 6. This is where all the natives are, but no wild flowers or fruit trees. There are not too many native plantings in Zone 6, but if you do happen to spot a tree or two, the chances are that it is an exotic species. You might be able to grow it yourself if you have some experience, but I wouldn’t get too worked up over it because most of the species you will find in Zones 5 and 6 are pretty common. If you are having trouble finding some of the rare species that can be found in this zone, then search the internet for information.
