- Weeping Cherry is an ornamental weeping cherry tree that has been cultivated in Japan for many centuries.
- Their slender and flexible branches lead them to gracefully weep, sometimes almost kissing the ground.
- Once developed, the branches become firm and stiff.
- Medium growth rate of 13 to 24 inches per year.
- Larger grafted branches may have a medium growth rate while weeping stems grow very rapidly—25 inches per year.
- Sometimes considered a dwarf variety.
- This tree is usually 10 to 12 feet tall and wide, but some specimens can grow to be as large as 15 to 20 feet.
