I bought my weeping cherry over a year ago and did not get any flowers this spring. It is growing nicely and has abundant leaves but did not flower. What could I be doing wrong?

We have a Weeping Japanese Cherry and we love it, it is beautiful. We would like to know the best way to prune and when. There are a couple of long shoots at the top that look out of place. Thank you, Vikie Ashwort

The same with me! I planted this tree two years ago and I only had one small pink flower the second year too! It is healthy but the limbs are almost falling straight down one the trunk, there isn't much of gracefully arches that you would hope for in a weeping tree.... Waiting to see if next year it will look better..

The cherry tree has green leaves and appears healthy. I don't expect blooms the first or second year.
The weeping cherry was very healthy and survived Pittsburgh weather. It is growing and leaves are opening.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Pink Weeping Cherry Tree

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Pink Weeping Cherry Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Pink Weeping Cherry Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Pink Weeping Cherry Tree again after the transplant is complete.

Why my weeping cherry does not have flowers for 6 years?
Minhtam T on Dec 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: There could be a number of reasons why its not blooming. Annual pruning is important for weeping cherry trees. Pruning keeps the weeping shape of the branches looking trimmed and leaves enough space between them for healthy blossoming. If the branches are are overcrowded they will not produce blooms. Winter or a late frost, has the potential to stop a weeping cherry tree from blooming. Ice, snow and frost late in the winter season can kill off new growth, such as leaf and flower buds, that can stop the weeping cherry tree from blossoming. Pruning after frost damage can encourage new growth. Nitrogen Fertilizer used for lawn care could also cause flowering trees not to bloom.

Do I need two trees for cross pollination, or will one do?

what is the caliper of the 5-6ft tree?
DAwn H on Jul 18, 2014
The caliper of a 5-6 foot tree is about the size of my pinky finger. When my tree came it looks like a good sized twig. A year later, it is now the size of my middle finger. I had no idea the tree would be so small and frail. It is grounded with a metal pole to keep it standing straight until it grows big enough to stand on it's own. I wished I had purchased a bigger version than I did. It will be a beautiful tree in 10 years from now.
SCOTT P on Sep 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This cherry tree is a non fruiter and will just produce blooms so it does not require a pollinator.

Should I add anything in the hole before I plant this tree?
craigie on Jul 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: My trees are doing great. We just put in a wee bit of pay dirt and some top soil mixed in with the normal soil. I live in the high desert so it is amazing to us how well the two trees are doing! I cannot wait to see them in bud next spring...
What does the leaves look like?
Pat T on Mar 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately when I received the plant showed little signs of life. I planted it according to directions but after two weeks what little signs of life had disappeared. To this day I have not pulled the tree up hoping against hope it would somehow sprout the spring.I have a neighbor you has an older tree of this type and it is beautiful.
I hope this helps you.

STEVEN M on Apr 23, 2016
Will the root bed in this tree seek out any water structures? We are wanting to plant this in our yard but don't have a lot of options due to water lines I the yard. My concerns is the roots finding the lines.

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
