Double Weeping Rosebud Cherry
Prunus pendula 'Pleno-rosea'
|Description||Graceful, long weeping boughs sway like willows in the breeze, densely packed with large magenta buds that open to perfect double pink flowers in spring. Blooms later than some, making it less prone to bud damage from a late season cold snap. Plant as a focal point or use pairs to frame entries. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Slowly reaches 15 to 20 ft. tall and wide.|
|Design Ideas||Few trees can compare with the beauty of the weeping Cherry, a traditional Japanese garden plant that's equally at home in the cottage-garden setting. A gorgeous single specimen that is planted as a focal point in simple surroundings, such as lawn or mat-like groundcover. May also be used in beds and borders. Particularly nice with water gardens and reflection pools, where its weeping form is complementary. Ideal for city landscapes as a front-yard standout. However, it should be protected from hot afternoon sun, drying wind, or prevailing breezes that may disrupt its umbrella-like shape.|
|Companion Plants||Juniper (Juniperus); Dwarf Plumbago (Ceratostigma plumbaginoides); Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus); Lilac (Syringa); Coneflower (Echinacea)|
|Care||Prefers slightly acidic, moist, well-drained soils. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy, neat appearance, prune annually to shape.|
