SNOW FOUNTAIN WEEPING FLOWERING CHERRY

Buy Snow Fountain Weeping Flowering Cherry online. A famous selection was named for it's strong weeping habit and profusion of single white flowers in early spring. It has the appearance of a fountain of snow. It is drought and heat tolerant, with clean, dark green, disease-tolerant foliage that turns golden to orange/red in the fall. Our starts are certified virus free (VC) and, being grown from cuttings our trees do not have any unsightly graft unions or rootstock suckers shooting up out of the plant, so you can be creative! Make it a ground cover, drape it over a boulder or make a serpentine trunk. The possibilities abound.
