The Story

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.

The Details

This Weeping Kwanzan Cherry is extraordinary! The weeping branches are absolutely covered in gorgeous double pink flowers in spring. Make sure you plant this splendid tree near a window so you can take a peek every time you pass by. Perfect to use as a specimen but would also be quite spectacular planted in a large grove... can you imagine?

How to Grow

Flowering Cherries need lots of sunshine to bloom well every year.  They appreciate a steady supply of water during the growing season, but resent having to put up with waterlogged soils (which will cause their leaves to turn yellow and drop).  Cherries can stand rather droughty conditions and can even tolerate some salt, but they should never be made to endure any such distress.  Kwanzan-type Cherries, like Weeping Extraordinaire™, are more vulnerable to pests than some other Cherries and need to be kept in tip-top shape, because vigorous, healthy trees can better fend off attacks.
