The dwarf weeping cherry tree is a fairly newer species that is quickly gaining in popularity for those looking for a superb piece to add to their landscaping. If you're familiar with the weeping mulberry tree, this variety bends toward the ground in the same manner. People are finding themselves infatuated with this tree not only because it produces an abundance of gorgeous white flowers but because it is incredibly simple to grow.

in 2006, the dwarf weeping cherry tree made its grand debut and since then it is nearly impossible to get your hands on them. If you find a nursery with any in stock, don't think twice....just buy! it is being deemed the perfect tree because it is not fussy about soil, temperature and its just the right size for a small to moderate-sized lawn.

Growing the Dwarf Weeping Cherry Tree

You can let the dwarf weeping cherry tree grow wild or prune it if desired. If you leave it alone, the branches will grow to the ground, creating a nice hideaway for you to store a hammock under for a nap. These trees will live to be about 70 years old and will mature at a height between 20 and 30 feet tall. Be sure to not plant too close to your house or you will have some root issues.

The dwarf weeping cherry tree prefers a spot in your land that can provide six to eight hours of direct sunlight per day.

  • Dig the hole twice as large as the rootball and use a pitchfork to stab holes at the bottom of the created hole to allow space for the roots to grow.
  • Place the rootball in the hole and backfill with the original soil and some peat moss.
  • Water thoroughly, allowing the water to soak in deep and then water again.
  • Press the dirt firmly to be sure there are no air pockets.
  • Mulch the ground to hold in moisture and help prevent weeds.

General Care

The dwarf weeping cherry tree will be extremely thirsty for a few days so water as needed. Usually every three days until it is established is ideal unless you get an abundance of rain. For the first year, fertilizer spikes are recommended and then you can switch off to a time-released fertilizer.

Now don't forget a spectacular outdoor water fountain to compliment your landscaping!
