Weeping Conifer

I'm interested in suggestions for a weeping conifer speciman. The site is 6 x 8 feet in full sun. There's a 30 foot JM redblood nearby.

I like the weeeping norway spruce. Any other suggestions. i'm not a huge fan of Blue atlas cedar. I've seen some nice online pictures of Larch but none "live" (year round "interest is not critical..the site is off the back deck). I have a picea glauca pendula in the front of the house.

Thanks

How about that newer Taxodium distichum that keeps a central leader? I lost my notes, can't remember the name. Surely someone here will know it.

RE: Weeping Conifer

You know Garp you can add those details to your user information. Then, pick and choose.. I think any I've shown will do just fine. And ya, Ernie, I've forgotten as well, but there is a new weeper Bald Cyress just like all I've shown as well, that doesn't require staking unless it's a young plant just needing the staking to achieve the initial apical upright growth.
