Willow cherry trees grow 20 to 30 feet tall and 25 feet wide. This is a fast growing tree with a weeping crown and lush spring blossoms. The deep green leaves change to a rich golden-yellow colour in fall, revealing long bare branches throughout the winter.
The tree only requires pruning to control size and weak or broken branches. Weeping cherry prefers well-drained, clay-loamy soil and full sun. Because of its non-invasive root structure, the tree is OK to plant near sidewalks and driveways and is moderately drought tolerant.
Common insects are spider mites that make the leaves and new branches yellow. Aphids cause malformations on new growth and destroy immature fruit. Using a horticultural oil will free the tree of pests and help ensure it reaches its full height potential.
