Weeping Yoshino Cherry Trees
  • £70 (inc VAT)
Loading...

This Weeping Yoshino Cherry tree produces rounded clusters of single white, sometimes blush, flowers in March-April that have a delicious almond-like fragrance. The pendulous branches are covered in bronze new foliage which turns to dark-green and then develops attractive, fiery autumn colours.

This Cherry Blossom tree will grow to 4 x 3 metres in 20 years and so is well suited to small spaces.  Pollution tolerant, Shidare Yoshino will do well in urban areas and is suited to most soil types except extremes. A lovely, small garden tree with flowers that are less blousy than some of the other Prunus varieties, but equally as impressive making it an ideal feature tree.

Planting Advice for Prunus X Yedoensis Shidare Yoshino Trees

Our pot grown Yoshino Weeping Cherry trees can be planted at any time of the year. A location away from strong winds protects the blossom. Remove surrounding weeds and grass, then dig a square hole as deep as the root mass and twice as wide. To help the tree establish, sprinkle root grow in the hole.

Remove the pot, gently loosen the roots and place into the planting hole. Mix 50% of the original soil with 50% compost, fill in the hole and firm around gently. Avoid banking the soil up around the collar of the tree.

We recommend planting Weeping Cherry Blossom trees (except multi-stem forms) with a stake and tie kit to ensure the roots are well anchored - instructions are in the planting guide. Finish by watering generously around the base.

Aftercare Advice for Prunus Yedoensis Shidare Yoshino Trees

Water 'Shidare-Yoshino' Weeping Cherry trees well and regularly through the first spring and summer, increasing in periods of hot or dry weather. In autumn, you may only need to water a little. Our Irrigation kits aid establishment.

Once planted, keep the area free of competing weeds and grass for the first couple of growing seasons. If your area is prone to rabbits, use a rabbit guard.

Pruning Advice for Prunus Yedoensis Shidare Yoshino Trees

Although it is possible to simply leave your Weeping Yoshino Cherry tree to its own devices, weeping varieties react much better to being heavily pruned in the first few years. Pruning should be carried out in the dormant season, removing any branches growing upwards or straight down. A tip for pruning weeping Cherry trees is to always prune to an upwards facing bud.

On top grafted forms, very occasionally the grafted stem may produce shoots and these should be pruned back
