I planted a weeping cherry tree at the corner of my house. It is so beautiful in the spring! I highly recommend the tree.

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.

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 is thriving
I purchased this tree last summer and planted it soon after it arrived. Initially, it was a fairly sparse and scrawny 4 feet. However, since that time it's survived a harsh Northeast winter, grown nearly two feet (an unexpected but highly welcome surprise), and branched/leafed out BEAUTIFULLY. In fact, its drooping branches already nearly touch the ground.

I wish I could attribute the tree's success to a green thumb on my part, but I'm just a dilettante who just fertilized it lightly and watered it heavily. Unfortunately, the tree still hasn't flowered, but I hope to be greeted next spring with some striking white blooms!

Fantastic Tree
I bought my White Weeping Cherry tree in October. It looked kind of sad and I was worried about the tree making it through the Ohio winter. But as spring came, the tree looks fantastic. There are many more leaves than last fall; maybe double. I am excited to see it bloom this year and can't wait for the tree to mature.

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.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for 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.

Planting & Care

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.

I'm going to plant this near a creek bend through my back yard
James H on Apr 10, 2017
I have been looking for a weeping cherry tree for over a year and just couldn't find one that "looked right" and was affordable. This is perhaps the most gorgeous tree I think I have ever seen and plan to have one planted over my ashes after I have left this life also. It is beauty and life and loving all at once to my eye.

For it's originality and beauty. It will look great in our huge, empty (for the time being) yard.
Jennifer M on Apr 19, 2016
I chose this tree for my husband because he likes willows. Also I needed another tree to plant in my backyard.
curlene p on Mar 16, 2016
Who wouldn't want a beautiful weeping cherry in their yard? It will be a pleasure to look at, so I'm planting it right at the end of my driveway, so I'll see it every time I come home.

my tree will not weep, it has been pruned several times and still won't weep what can I do?
Nancy B on Jun 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It could be it is not old enough to weep yet. Also, I would stop pruning it that could be another reason it is not weeping.
Approximately how much will this tree grow per year?
Carolyn C on Feb 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: After one year, mine has grown nearly two feet and its formerly short branches nearly reach the ground. I don't know if this is an atypical rate of growth, but so far it's been a remarkably robust tree. I fertilize it lightly and and water it very well.

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.

Lars V on Jun 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: we have one in our neighborhood that is about 25ft high and about 30-35 feet wide and aprox 25 years old. They do trim the tree for shape so I dont know if that is normal but a beautiful tree year round
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.

Connie S on Jul 5, 2014

what the life span of this tree ?
andrey s on May 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We just planted ours last June (2014), and she survived a brutal winter in Michigan's Upper Peninsula and is now budding. Anyway, from what I've read, 15 years is kind of a minimum, with the range being 15-30. It all depends on whether you can keep it free of disease and pests.

Hello can this tree grow in places where the average temperature in May averages 24.8 °C.And in January where the average temperature is 20.2 °C ?
Misael V on Feb 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I live in New England and our tree is doing just fine. It has not branched out a lot so it is staked for support since it is growing tall. Maybe in a few years it will do better. I probably would not buy again as it looks quite odd not filled out.
How far away from septic lines do i need to plant this?
Aaron R on Dec 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: At least 20 feet away, because these are weeping cherry trees, they will seek water, so their root systems tend to spread out... Hope that helps... I love my tree... :D
