Caring for Weeping Yoshino Cherry Tree

Spring and fall are ideal times to plant your Weeping Yoshino Cherry tree. However, if you avoid freezing temperatures and extreme heat you can plant your flowering cherry tree almost any time of the year.

Yoshino cherry trees thrive in full sun and are adaptable to any well draining soil. Water deeply when planting and about twice weekly for about 3 months while your new tree is establishing. Once your tree is established you will only need to water during extreme dry periods. Adding a layer of mulch around your tree is recommended especially with newly planted trees. This will help keep the soil moist and cool in summer and protect the roots in winter as well.

Feed your tree when planting and in early spring with a slow release fertilizer.

Pruning is not recommended for weeping ornamental cherry trees unless necessary. Prune in winter or early spring to remove any dead, dying, or crowded branches.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the right care for your plants. Scale, aphids and mites are insects that can affect flowering cherry trees. You can treat these pests naturally with horticultural oil, neem oil, or insecticidal soap. For severe infections you can use pesticides like carbaryl, also known as Sevin. Tent Caterpillars and Cankerworms are sometimes an issue for flowering cherry trees. These can be treated with an organic pesticide spray, Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt). Occasionally fungal issues can occur especially in humid areas or when overhead watering is used. Generally, treating after infection isn't extremely effective, so if you have problems yearly, treat in early spring with fungicides to prevent infection. Neem Oil is an organic method of treating and preventing some fungal diseases and pests. It can be effective, but the entire tree must be coated in order for this method to be effective. Most fungal problems are cosmetic issues for the leaf and do not affect the overall health of the tree.

Landscape ideas

The Weeping Cherry tree is a perfect focal tree for a small or large yard.

Plant your Weeping Yoshino Cherry tree in a showcased spot in your yard. Make an island out of the bed. Add a boulder off to the side of the cherry tree and use some soft touch holly shrubs or blue star junipers on the sides.

Weeping Yoshino Cherry trees are perfect centerpieces for rock or cottage gardens. Mix well with Japanese Snowbell also. 

A group of 3 cherry trees is great for anchoring the corner of a large yard and will add tons of character to your landscape and home.
