Cheal’s Weeping is a small spectacular ornamental tree suitable for containers, and any gardens. Wonderfully blousy covered in deep pink double blossom in April and May. The leaves emerging at the same time as the flowers, tinged bronze then green turning to orange and yellow in the autumn. The weeping habit give a graceful outline and is a year-round asset. Easy to maintain, in sun or partial shade, it likes moist deep fertile loamy soil, growing best on alkaline soil. Ornamental cherries do not like waterlogged or permanently wet ground and organic matter should be added to poor soils when planting. Tolerant of pollution, Cheal’s Weeping is a good choice for an urban garden.

Prunus Kiku shidare Zakura will develop its shape without pruning but prune in summer after flowering if it’s necessary to remove dead or crossing branches. If planting more than one tree space the trees around 6 metres apart.
Native to Japan, Kiku Sidare Zakura was introduced to Britain in 1915 and is much loved by gardeners for its glorious densely clustered blossom and graceful outline.
The tree is watered before being carefully packed by one of our experienced staff on site. It comes in a cardboard box lined with straw. (We try to use as much recycling material as possible) The box is addressed to the customer or a specified name and address and sent out overnight delivery to arrive on requested dates.
Please note the size of the tree that you are ordering, as our trees are provided for our clients to plant themselves, which may appear at a small size rather than the fully grown tree as shown in the photos.
