Comments: This weeping cherry from Japan is very strong specimen or accent in the landscape because of it cascading branches and many pink flowers. In autumn it has orange foliage and in winter the shiny, reddish brown, peeling bark can add interest to the garden. This cold tolerant selection is short lived and has many insect and disease problems as does do lot of plants in the genus, Prunus.
