Prunus subhirtella 'Pendula,' also called weeping Higan cherry or simply weeping cherry, is a flowering cherry tree originally from Japan with a weeping growth form, with low-hanging, draped branches that can spread up to 40' wide from a mature tree of the same height. Quintessential pink and white cherry blossoms begin blooming in early spring and, when added to the weeping form, present a breathtaking display of dense blooms that sway in the wind and are beneficial to a variety of pollinators, including butterflies, bees, and even hummingbirds.

Prunus subhirtella 'Pendula,' can tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, but prefers organically rich loam that is kept moist, but well drained. In addition, weeping cherry can tolerate part shade, but prefers full sun.

Weeping cherry produces small, black-fleshed cherries, which aren't the best for human consumption, but attract birds and small mammals.

Marylanders Plant Trees

From the Maryland Department of Natural Resources:

"We launched Marylanders Plant Trees in 2009 to encourage citizens and organizations to partner with the State to plant new trees. Today, citizens can still take advantage of our coupon program to receive $25 off the purchase of a native tree at 86 participating nurseries across the State. The State cost of $20 per coupon is funded through a settlement from a major power generator for Clean Air Act violations, in partnership with the Office of the Attorney General, and Maryland’s participating tree vendors are generously absorbing the remaining $5.

Trees must be planted in the state of Maryland to qualify for $25 off coupon.
Wholesale customers do not qualify.
