Weeping Ornamental Cherry- (Prunus subhirtella pendula)

Nothing defines spring more than this tree. Early flowering in late April with double pink or white varieties. The tree can attain heights of 30 feet and equal spread. The flowers will remain on the tree for a few weeks and are frost resistant. This tree will flower every year. Cherries in general like well drained soils as well as non compacted areas with some organic matter. The tree fits well in a small space and can be used as an accent plant, and is especially nice as a landscape pond feature. The main problem with the tree is graft failure after several years. Seedlings are available but difficult to grow because of the weeping structure. Grafting on a high standard is standard practice. This cherry produces no fruit, but is prized by song birds for nesting sites, due to the low dense crown. A very nice addition for any property.
