High on anyone's list of graceful trees is weeping cherry. But there isn't just one weeping cherry—there are lots. Some have
pink flowers; others have white. Some have single blooms; others have double. Some grow 40 feet tall; others grow 12 to 15
feet tall. Ungrafted weepers grown on their original roots appear fountain-like; those grafted atop a straight trunk of higan
cherry (P. x subhirtella) offer a more formal look.
'Snow Fountains' comes both ways, so choose the one you like. Growing only 12 feet tall and wide with pure white blooms, it has pendulous branches that cascade to the ground. Leaves turn orange and golden in fall. It's good for the Upper, Middle, and Lower South.
