Planting a tree "so pretty you could shed a tear" gains new meaning when you lay your eyes on a Pink Cascade® Weeping Cherry (Prunus x 'NCPH1'). The spectacular spring brilliance is just one of the reasons it's a must-have in this year's garden! Early in the spring before it even thinks to fill in with luscious green foliage, a plethora of pretty pink cherry blossoms blankets the tree from top to bottom! Followed by early emerging pollinators in search of a spring snack!
With each passing season, the graceful, sweeping branches stretch closer and closer toward the ground. Although listed as 12 feet or so tall, they can be trained to grow with one central leader and allowed to grow taller if desired. Most prefer to remove the more vertical new growth maintaining the weeping stems and keeping the size in check.
Let Pink Cascade® be the star of your garden while the rest of your ornamental trees are still gearing up for their own flower-power-filled shows Hardy throughout USDA growing zones 5 - 7 and flowers early into a wonderful pink cloud! The early blooms are great news for pollinators looking to get an early start on the year. Not to mention a welcome sight after long winters!
This deciduous tree's weeping form makes it perfect for patio plantings and front yard focal points. Adorn your front garden leading to your door with a foal point or use Pink Cascade® as a graceful anchor to your foundation planting on the corner of your home! You'll soften edges while creating a four-season spectacle that bumps up the curb appeal big time!
Plant towards the back of your gardens to create a backdrop for your front flower beds. You can also line your entryways with rows of these unique trees for a fascinating first impression. Plant up in a large patio planter for some pinpoint shade and a graceful conversation starter! Or create your own area for relaxation and peace - especially when used in a Zen garden or reflected into a water feature.
You'll want to plant your ornamental Weeping Cherry in full sun or partial shade. Like most other plants it'll also appreciate some well-drained soil and a 3-4 inch layer of mulch around its base. Mulch promotes healthy growth by protecting root systems and keeping moisture levels consistent throughout the summer heat. The right color can tie a picture-perfect landscape together.
