Planting instructions

Although a Pink Snow Showers™ Weeping Cherry Tree has a chance of surviving in partial shade settings, it is far more preferable to use a growing location that receives six hours of sunlight per day or more. The soil in your growing location does not necessarily need a high volume of nutrients, but it must have good drainage. Once you find a location that meets those conditions, dig a hole that is as deep as the plant’s root ball is tall and at least twice as wide.

Watering and nutrients

The best way to know whether or not it is time to water a Pink Snow Showers™ Weeping Cherry Tree is to monitor the soil. When you notice that the first two to three inches of soil have dried out, it is time to give this plant more water. Fertilization for a Pink Snow Showers™ Weeping Cherry Tree is quite easy, as a single application of balanced fertilizer in spring will suffice.

Pollination

The Pink Snow Showers™ Weeping Cherry Tree blooms during spring with many nectar-rich flowers that can attract many types of pollinators, including bees, butterflies and more. Since this species is self-fertile, a single plant is capable of pollinating itself successfully. However, since this plant is a cultivated variety that nursery workers developed mainly for its flowers rather than its fruits, harvest is not a common goal for gardeners who grow the Pink Snow Showers™ Weeping Cherry Tree.

Pruning

One major benefit of growing the Pink Snow Showers™ Weeping Cherry Tree is that this tree takes on a fascinating weeping form without the need for extensive pruning and shearing. Instead, all you’ll need to do on the pruning front is remove any branch that is clearly dead, broken or diseased. Often, it is best to perform this pruning during the later winter or early spring as the plant is exiting its dormant phase and resuming active growth.

Pests, diseases and animals

Another advantage of the Pink Snow Showers™ Weeping Cherry Tree is that this tree’s development led it to be resistant to shot-hole disease, a complication that is quite common among related cherry tree plants. However, despite that specific resistance, the Pink Snow Showers™ Weeping Cherry Tree is not entirely immune from pest and disease issues. This plant can experience infestations of Japanese beets, spider mites and aphids. Leaf spots, powdery mildew and various forms of wilt can arise as well.

Achieving maximum results

Unlike many other popular weeping cherry tree varieties, the Pink Snow Showers™ Weeping Cherry Tree is a relatively large tree at maturity. You should account for this larger size from the onset during your planting process. It is best to give this plant about 15 to 20 feet of space to allow it to develop to its mature size without interfering with nearby plants in your garden. You may also discover that the more sunlight this plant receives, the better its flowers and foliage will look throughout the year.

FAQs

What color are the Pink Snow Showers™ Weeping Cherry Tree's leaves?

During the spring, the leaves of the Pink Snow Showers™ Weeping Cherry Tree will first emerge with a greenish bronze color. Throughout the spring, that color will fade to a more traditional leafy green shade. Then, in fall, the leaves will take on a bronze color again before they fall to the ground as the tree enters its dormant growth phase. This changing foliage color only adds to the visual appeal of the Pink Snow Showers™ Weeping Cherry Tree during the growing season.

Why is it called the Pink Snow Showers™ Weeping Cherry Tree?

The origin of the name “Pink Snow Showers™ Weeping Cherry Tree” will be somewhat obvious to those who have laid eyes on this plant. The name is a reference to both the flowers and the overall form of this plant. Those flowers have a light pink color and a soft texture, and the weeping growth habit of this tree makes the flowers look like falling pink snow.

Is the Pink Snow Showers™ Weeping Cherry Tree a fast-growing plant?

The Pink Snow Showers™ Weeping Cherry Tree has a fast growth rate compared to many of the trees you can grow in your yard. In a single season, this tree can add one to two feet of new growth to its branches. That rate amounts to a surprisingly large mature size of about 20 to 30 feet tall with a spread that is slightly smaller.
