Introducing the graceful Weeping Higan Cherry (Prunus subhirtella var. Pendula). This striking tree can grow between 20 to 30 feet tall and spread an impressive 15 to 25 feet, displaying a stunning weeping habit that adds elegance to any landscape. The leaves remain a glossy green from summer through fall, then turn a vivacious yellow before leaving the tree bare for winter. Nonetheless, the bare, drooping branches continue to provide a soothing form to the landscape, even in the colder months.
Where the Weeping Higan Cherry truly shines is in full bloom during the spring. Covered in small light pink, almost white flowers before the leaves emerge, the tree appears as if it's been blanketed by fresh snow. Perfect as a standout specimen in large yards, parks or commercial landscapes, it captivates attention throughout the year.
However, this beauty does demand a little more maintenance, so be prepared to invest more resources in its care. Given the right conditions, such as mulch to the edge of its canopy and branches close to the ground, this tree truly shines. Particularly attractive near bodies of water, it sways gently in the breeze, a truly mesmerizing sight.
Weeping Higan Cherry is typically grafted onto a fast-growing rootstock and can adapt to almost any soil. If you choose to grow these seeds, remember that their characteristics might differ from the mother tree. It grows rapidly and prefers sunny, open locations, sheltered from the wind. Protection from turf grass competition and regular irrigation, especially in sandy soils, are recommended for its optimal growth. Overall, this outstanding tree is a magnificent addition to any large-scale landscape.
