Keeping up appearances…
The spectacular Snow Fountain Cherry is a sight to behold regardless of the season, and for multiple reasons! Its spring flowers are most characteristic, completely festooning the tree in a unique “fountain” of gorgeous pale blossoms that cover its graceful willow-esque structure, attracting plenty of butterflies, and providing this specimen with its lovely title. This small weeping tree is aesthetically pleasing all year round due to its lush foliage with their rich autumn hues, its warmly colored bark, and its supple structure.
A friendly recommendation.
It may be that the “snow” portion of the flowering Snow Fountain Cherry’s name pays as much tribute to this specimen’s resistance against the snow and ice—since this specimen is able to survive even under these wintry layers!—as much as to its spring blossoms. Extremely resilient and sturdy, this elegant tree is just as hardy when you turn up the heat, tolerating droughts and dry spells. It thrives with full sun in well-drained soil and can be cultivated in the 5-8 hardiness zones; its narrow growth habit makes it easy to grow in compact spaces and it is a reliable choice as an ornamental tree.
