A weeping cherry tree is at its best in spring when the pendulant branches are covered with pink or white flowers. It makes a graceful, elegant specimen tree for front lawns where it is sure to attract attention.
Weeping cherries grow and bloom best in full sun, but they tolerate light shade. Well-drained soil is essential in the care of weeping cherries, especially to prevent rot.
Weeping cherry flowers attract butterflies and hummingbirds, so avoid the use of insecticides while the flowers are in bloom.
