Description

A profusely flowering dwarf weeping cherry. Awash with beautiful fragrant single white flowers covering graceful pendent branches in late March. In Autumn, leaves turn bright orange, red and yellow giving much pleasure. Do not forget to feed and water your tree if you keep it in a pot.

Cherries are fully hardy and need full sunshine and will grow in all but waterlogged soil. A low maintenance tree, cherries need very little pruning, mainly to cut out any diseased or dead wood. Prune in mid-summer if silver leaf is a problem. They do like a good weed, mulch and compost in spring. A dwarf cultivar and suitable small gardens and in pots or planters on patios. Bees greatly benefit from the flowers.
