The Weeping Cherry tree is one of those ornamental trees that is a true focal point. Its striking, weeping form makes it different than other trees in the landscape. It pink flowers in the spring are beautiful!
This flowering tree is very graceful and has single pink flowers which appear in early spring. They start out a deep pink, then get lighter, and by the end they are almost white.
The Weeping Higan Cherry which is prunus subhirtella 'pendula' (weeping), have the following traits:
I would place one of these in a prominent position on your property. It might be near a patio, near a pond, out in the open lawn, or near your front door on the other side of your walkway.
These are all places where the tree can be seen and stand out as a specimen and the focal point it deserves to be.
It can be either placed in a bed with other plants, such as low evergreen shrubs or colorful perennials, or it can be place alone. When use alone, you should consider creating a bed around it which is at least 4 feet in diameter so that the trunk does not get hit by the lawn mower.
Another way to use this tree is to place it where there are tall evergreen trees behind it. This is a great way to make the beautiful form stand out even further as it will have a nice dark green background.
"Susan, what a pleasure it was to work with you. You made me feel like I was your only client - responding late at night and always so quickly! Your design is amazing and we only hope we can do justice to it when we plant. You have such fantastic ideas and you are so open to suggestions and changes. Loved working with you - now if you could only come to Canada and plant it!!!"
