Weeping Cherry

Weeping cherries are a perfect addition for spring color. They bloom with delicate white or pink flowers about late April and last about 2 weeks. Weeping cherries have a normal trunk, but a large umbrella of flowers and leaves that make the tree appear to “shower” the surrounding area. In the fall their leaves turn a beautiful shade of bronze. They require full sun and usually only grow to about 15 ft. tall. Sandy and acidic soil is fine, but if you have heavy clay, it is a good idea to aerate the soil with some peat moss.
