A beautiful weeping tree that is ideal for the smallest gardens and will thrive in large tubs. Its long, weeping branches are smothered in pure white flowers in March and April and create a cascade effect. The flowers are produced on the current year's growth, so the branches can be pruned hard each year after flowering if required. The leaves are small, mid-green, and turn lush shades of burgundy and red in autumn.Garden care: When planting, incorporate lots of well-rotted compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. If potting up use John Innes No3 compost and make sure it is kept well watered during warm weather. Any necessary pruning should be done in summer to reduce the risk of bacterial canker canker.
