The Space Saving Flowering Cherry With Tons of Color
Snow Fountain Weeping Cherry Trees are popular all across the nation because they display multiple seasons of color in even the smallest landscapes. By only growing to about 15 feet tall they can fit anywhere.
They are the perfect choice for planting in rows along a property border or close to structures like driveways or sidewalks because they won’t take over space. However, with their unforgettable beauty, they are most often used as accent pieces or the main focal point of flowering gardens.
Snow Fountain Weeping Cherries have elegant arching branches that become covered in thousands of pure white blossoms every spring. The flowers cover the tree from top to bottom, causing it to look like a large water fountain that’s completely frozen over.
During the warmer seasons, the canopy becomes filled with lush, glossy green leaves that turn vibrant shades of orange and gold in the fall. In the winter the Snow Fountain Weeping Cherry still displays color with its mahogany trunk that stands in the empty winter landscape.
The blossoms attract important pollinators like butterflies and your landscape, which are a delight to watch as they flutter from bloom to bloom. They will pollinate your Weeping Cherry tree as well as other flowering plants in your garden.
Low maintenance Snow Fountain Weeping Cherry Trees are a favorite among the north and snow because they’re cold hardy and heat resistant. They are cold hardy to zone 5 and will flourish under heavy layers of ice and snow. Your summers will be worry-free while your drought-tolerant Snow Fountain Weeping Cherry Tree flourishes without the need to be constantly checked on.
Customer Reviews & Photos

Nice I compare trees to growing kids Nurture with water and nutrients time patience and enjoy the journey
To say that I was pleased with the tree would be an understatement. It came well packaged and in excellent condition. Thank you for a beautiful tree.
I was shopping for an ornamental flowering tree for a semi-smaller area of my garden and selected the snow fountain weeping cherry. I should mention I shopped for trees at almost every on-line nursery I could find and went through a lot of money for a few that were promised to be decent sized, then arrived as a 1-2 foot tall stick with a few leaves on it. So when I contacted Fast Growing Trees customer service by phone and asked them about the size of their tree selections, I was skeptical. I ordered the 7-8 foot 15 gallon size which they assured me was "huge" and "land-scape ready". It was more expensive but I thought it was worth a try for something decent. Of course I ordered on 4/4 during the onset of COVID Pandemic so shipping was delayed and after 4 weeks I began to worry whether I'd receive my tree. Upon calling, they assured me the order was confirmed and the tree had not shipped yet (partially due to COVID19 and partially because of the large size - it seems the extra large sized trees take longer to ship). I was told I'd receive an email with an update for delivery which I never did so I was pretty worried - I'd say that part was the only star I took off this rating. My tree arrived today (4/29) and I must admit I was floored. This tree was exactly 8 feet tall, with an at least 4 foot spread fully leaved out. The blossoms were gone so I presume it had already blossomed and they fell off before it arrived (I'm basing this on the 4' weeping snow fountain cherry tree next door which I see the blossoms falling off of now). It was in fact a 15 gallon, healthy tree as promised and it has a beautiful white bark stem. It was delivered in a huge moving van and I was so happy to see it was not chopped to pieces and crammed in a box the way most of the trees are shipped elsewhere. I am sooooo happy with this purchase and I will be coming back to Fast Growing Trees to purchase my shrubs next. Go ahead you guys - take your time getting that order to me! If they come looking as good as this tree did, the wait was well worth it. It's planted in it's little happy garden circle at the corner of my house and by end of day will be surrounded by my salvia, roses and hyacinths which are en-route as we speak. It looks happy, and so do I.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Select a location with well-drained soil and plenty of sunlight (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day).
Dig a hole for that’s three times as wide and equal in depth as the root ball. Remove your tree from its original container, position into the hole ensuring that it’s standing upright, and the top of the root ball is even with the ground.
Begin backfilling the hole, tamping down lightly as you go. Once the hole has been completely filled, water to allow the soil to settle and eliminate any air pockets. Finally, apply a 3 to 5-inch layer of mulch around the tree.
2. Watering: We recommend watering these trees in the morning, at the base. If you’re not sure when to water, simply check the top 2 inches of soil for dryness. If the soil is dry here, it’s time to water your shrub.
3. Fertilizing: Apply a slow-release fertilizer once a year in early spring, before new growth emerges. Follow up by watering the surrounding soil to allow the fertilizer to penetrate into the roots.
4. Pruning: Minimal pruning is needed for these trees. Any broken branches can be pruned back in spring before new growth begins.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
