#ProPlantTips for Care
Weeping Cherry is very easy to grow and tolerant of many conditions other trees would balk at. It's a popular ornamental small tree. Long, sweeping boughs gently cascade downward from a central crown.
It does require well-drained soil, but can tolerate a wide range of soil types from clay to sandy. Slightly acidic soils will deliver the best performance.
Check your drainage before planting your Weeping Cherry and mound up or create a raised bed if poor drainage is suspected in any location. Don't use this tree in lawns. Instead, place mulch around the tree. This will help further set this accent off in your landscape.
Weeping Cherry prefers full sun, but will tolerate a partial day's worth of sun. Always favor the morning sun and give protection from the hot afternoon sun or strong wind.
