How to Grow
Since your Trunk Twist Snow Fountain® is going to be the showpiece of the neighborhood, you should learn how to keep it looking healthy and happy. It’s really not that complicated. Like all Cherries, Snow Fountain® loves to bask in full sun and gladly accepts regular irrigation, but hates to sit around with “wet feet.” Be sure to remove suckers from the base of the tree as soon as they appear, and if you see any branches sprouting from the trunk, nip ’em in the bud (literally). You’ll want a clear view of that curvaceous trunk!
Questions & Answers
Q: Wondering when is the best time to plant a Snow Fountain Weeping Cherry Tree? (submitted 8/16/16)
A: Good question! For Snow Fountain the goal is to plant as early in Fall as possible and while the weather today does not indicate Fall has arrived, it has for the tree. The sooner we can plant the more root development we can expect through the remaining growing months. Roots can grow well into early Winter due to warmer soil temperatures.
Fall planting of Snow Fountain brings rewards! You will get to enjoy the Spring season show of color and at the same time your tree will grow quickly next season and will be prepared for Summer weather next year whatever that might be.
Follow our recommended planting practices and go forward with full confidence right now. Should the Summer weather persist, be sure to use our Water Element to assist you with keeping the newly planted tree watered well and properly. Through the Fall the Snow Fountain will enjoy more water as the tree continues to grow roots and stem caliper.
But remember: the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today!
