Description: A very popular small weeping tree with arching branches bearing densely clustered, double pink flowers in spring. Lance-shaped leaves are pale green and slightly bronzed at first. Often wrongly referred to as Prunus ‘Cheals Weeping’ which has a more steeply weeping habit.
History: An old Japanese cultivar known since the end of the 19th century. 'Kiku-shidare-zakura' means ‘Weeping Chrysanthemum Cherry’ in Japanese.
Prunus Growing Tips: Best grown in well-drained soil, in full sun to achieve the best flower display and autumn colour. Will tolerate most soil types including chalk and clay.
Height and Spread (after 10 years): 2.5m x 2.5m
