Pink Snow Showers Weeping Cherry (Prunus x ‘Pisnshzam’)
Pink Snow Showers Weeping Cherry
Wanting a spring show that rivals the National Cherry Blossom Festival but just don’t have space? We’ve all been there, that pesky powerline out front might feel like it’s holding you back but we’ve got you covered with the Pink Snow Showers™ Weeping Cherry (Prunus x ‘Pisnshzam’).
This tree has all the flower power of the cherry trees you know and love with a weeping form for a classic focal point or specimen for your yard!
In the spring, this deciduous beauty covers itself from top to bottom in luscious baby-pink cherry blossoms.
Once the flowers begin to fade – fear not because this tree is just getting started. It’ll grow foliage that flushes out a bronze color before transforming into glossy green, disease-free foliage that turns red and orange in fall.
The color goes incredibly well with the interesting red bark of the trunk. As the leaves retire for the season, you’ll be left with the stunning red bark on full display, adding intensity to the already unique weeping branch form.
When planting, make go ahead and give it a spot in full sun and well-drained soil. Water it in well when planting but after it’s established it’ll only need a medium amount of water.
Use it as the centerpiece of your backyard fairy garden or as the accent tree to end all accent trees next to your patio. You can plant under those powerline eyesores just fine with its shorter growth habit.
