Regarded as one of the finest weeping cherries, Prunus pendula 'Pendula Rosea' is a small deciduous tree forming a broad crown of long, gracefully arching pendulous branches. Opening from deep rosy-pink buds, small, single clear pink flowers appear in late winter to early spring before the leaves emerge. Held in drooping clusters of 2-5 blooms, they give a charming see-through effect. They are followed by small pea-sized black fruits which are inedible. As the flowers wane, the ovate, dark green leaves emerge and create a fresh summer canopy before warming up to brilliant shades of orange and red in fall. A spectacular and elegant ornamental cherry tree for the landscape.

  • Grows vigorously up to 15-25 ft. tall and wide (4-8 m).
  • Performs best in full sun in moist, relatively fertile, well-drained soils.
  • Perfect choice as single specimen plants, beds and borders
  • Watch for caterpillars, leaf-mining moths, bullfinches, silver leaf, bacterial canker and blossom wilt.
  • Propagate by seed or semi-hardwood cuttings.
