White Weeping Cherry

Why be normal? White Weeping Cherry Trees are one-of-a-kind


The Benefits of Bare-Root Trees...

Bare-root trees are grown in a field and naturally have a larger root system than container grown trees. This means you get a plant that will become established quicker and provide you with superior growth in the spring.

Your tree arrives dormant (sleeping for the winter). Without foliage to support, it doesn't require as much water or nutrients to survive. So transplanting is stress-free.

If you plant in the winter, your roots will continue to grow and become more established. When spring arrives you will see bright new foliage appearing.

Selling bare-root trees allows us to offer you a higher quality product at a lower price.

It's Easy to Plant your White Weeping Cherry

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

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

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 White Weeping Cherry 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 White Weeping Cherry again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Great tree! I had always wanted a willow tree and when I saw the weeping flowering cherry tree variety, I just had to try it at our new home. The tree arrived as promised in excellent condition. Also bought a Royal empress at the same time and it is thriving

Tree arrived NOV 2012 potted and undamaged. Planted it same day it arrived in backyard by creek in full sun. Watered it once a week for two months then let nature take over for the next two months. Tree survived winter and has leafed out nicely. Now I'm going to sit back and watch it grow.

Tree came on time and healthy. Immediately planted but sold the house a few months later. Tried to transplant the tree back into a large pot hope by some miracle that it would survive. Unfortunately, it did not.

I live in Bicknell, Utah. would this tree do well here, from the map it looks like it would. also, is it too late in the season to plant this and have it adapt before winter gets here?
A shopper on Jul 23, 2014
Best Answer: As long as Bicknell falls in zones 5 - 8 in Utah then it will grow fine. The best time to plant is in the early Spring or early Fall. However if your temperatures aren't scorching hot in the 90's or above you can go ahead and plant now.

Something is eating the leaves on my 2 yr old tree. Don't see anything. My husband sprayed it with Malathion but still see leaves that are eaten. Also how old before they bloom?
A shopper on Jun 20, 2014
Best Answer: Sometimes Caterpillars and butterflies get on leaves and then leave. I would suggest using seven dust or an organic pesticide to keep them away. Malathion mainly keeps mosquitoes away. You should see blooms in the early Spring. If you haven't seen any blooms yet try adding fertilizer to your tree early next Spring. Use a fertilizer high in phosphorus for the blooms.

do i need to stake my weeping cherry tree?
darryl j on Jun 19, 2014
Best Answer: I would definitely stake the weeping cherry for at least the first one to two years of growth. This way it will grow straight up instead of at an angle due to the wind.

looking to put next to pond less waterfall , how big is the root system get?
A shopper on Oct 8, 2014
Best Answer: well as a rule of thumb the roots are about the size of the tree above ground. Next to a waterfall will be a lot to clean when the cherry blossoms fall..will look great just a pain to clean out of a filter system

Will my 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.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.

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.
