Weeping cherry tree, or "weeping Higan cherry," is a specimen valued in spring for its flowers and year-round for its form. This cultivar was developed to take advantage of the lovely flowers of the genus, while adding a cascading form into the mix. The genus bears pink flowers; the cultivar, Prunus pendula 'Pendula Rosea,' as it is now called, bears single pink flowers (Rosea means "pink" or "rosey"; Pendula means "weeping"), while Prunus pendula 'Pendula Plena Rosea' bears pink double flowers. It is an ornamental tree, not a cherry tree grown for the sweet fruit that you would find in the grocery store; for the latter, grow sweet Bing cherries (Prunus avium 'Bing'). However, birds will enjoy the black fruit. Prunus is part of the Rose family, making it a relative of such landscape plants as Cotoneaster horizontalis, Crataegus phaenopyrum, and Physocarpus opulifolius. It is best planted in fall or early spring. Learn how to grow and care for weeping cherry, and decide if it is a good fit for your own yard.
