Double Weeping Cherry Tree

Prunus subhirtella 

Gorgeous Pink Fountain Effect!

The weeping part or “top-graft” is a hybrid variety, double-flowering pink Higan cherry. The weeping section provides an umbrella effect if it is pruned regularly, or can grow 25 or 30 feet tall if not cut back. There is a graft scar at the top of the trunk, just below the weeping branches. Anything that sprouts below the graft scar is wild cherry, not weeping cherry, and must be removed. This can be done at any time of year, the sooner the better. Young weeping cherry trees are typically top-heavy and need staking for the first year or two to keep them straight.
