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.

Full-size Survivor
We've planted two full-size weeping cherries transplanted locally that did not survive. We did not want a grafted weeping cherry, which appears to us as abnormal and deformed, but grafted trees are all that we could find locally in stores or online. Only Fast Growing Trees have the full-size, pink weeping cherries for sale. Oursvis surviving--even thriving.

Good service
We just recently acquired and planted this tree, so not much information as yet. The ordering and speed of service was excellent. We are hopeful the tree will survive our winter and look great in the spring.

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.

Planting & Care

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?
Tom M on Jun 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Pink Weeping Cherry Tree is self pollinating, but if it has a mate to cross pollinate with then you'll have a much higher yield of flowers.

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.

Genvillage L on Jun 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Our trees are grafted.

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...
can the pink weeping cherry tree be used as a pollinator for the rainier cherry tree?
