Snow Fountain® Weeping Cherry originated near Cleveland in 1985 at Lake County Nursery. LCN has been a prolific source of new plants, with nearly 150 introductions to date. In making their selections, they strive to produce plants with four-season appeal that are low-maintenance and naturally pest-resistant. By those standards, they couldn’t be happier with Snow Fountain®! Our High-Form Snow Fountains® are grafted at five feet, the branches weeping down from that point. You can trim the branches to expose the handsome bronze bark, or you can let them flow to the ground.
Lake County, Ohio, on the shores of Lake Erie, is an area blessed with rich farmland and scores of nurseries. One of the most prominent, Lake County Nursery, not only grows plants, but introduces new ones, too. LCN works with maples, dogwoods, crabapples, pears, and viburnums, but perhaps their biggest success story is Snow Fountain® Weeping Cherry, introduced in 1985. It’s hard to improve upon perfection. Our Low-Form Snow Fountains® are dapper little trees with a short trunk. They are grown to weep from a height of only 42 inches.
Kwanzan Flowering Cherry, one of the showboats of the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C. every year, is an old variety still much in demand. Its popularity is eclipsed in the U.S. only by the Weeping Flowering Cherry. But what if you love them both and only have room for one tree? You plant a Weeping Extraordinaire™! This tree is a recent introduction out of Ohio from Lake County Nursery. It has the same large, frilly flowers of Kwanzan, but on a weeping framework.
Most of the ornamental cherry trees that we see today originated in Japan, including this classic weeping form. This is a long-lived tree—in fact, one Weeping Cherry in Northern Japan, called Taki-Zakura (Waterfall Cherry), is over 1,000 years old! It is considered by many to be the most beautiful tree in all of Japan. Weeping Cherries are propagated by grafting. Our high-graft trees are grafted onto another cherry species five feet from the ground. This is the traditional Weeping Cherry Tree, with a straight, clean trunk free of lower branches.
If you’re ever in Japan, the birthplace of Flowering Cherries, you must visit Miharu Taki-Zakura—the “Waterfall Cherry of Miharu.” This Granddaddy of Weeping Cherries is over 1,000 years old and has 300,000 visitors yearly. Luckily, Weeping Cherries are fast growing trees, so you won’t have to wait quite that long to have a handsome specimen of your own! Our low-graft trees start branching at 42 inches from the ground, giving even young trees a shape less like the usual umbrella, and more like a waterfall (or taki, if you will).
