Weeping cherry trees add an instant touch of artistry to the landscape. The gracefully arched branches look great in any season. In spring the tree produces a cascade of fragrant pink blooms. During the summer the soft form adds a relaxing, fluid shape in the garden. In winter, the weeping branches become sculpture-like when covered with a layer of snow. Weeping cherry trees produce small, edible fruits but they are not sweet and flavorful like other species of cherries. Fruits won’t go to waste though; they provide a welcome treat for a variety of bird species.
Popular for planting near entranceways, near the patio, or as a focal point in a large mixed planting. Makes a breathtaking specimen plant and can be grown in a large container. This is a great selection for smaller yards. Surround with spring bulbs, such as tulips and daffodils to welcome spring on a grand scale.
