6ft 'Cheal's Weeping Cherry' Blossom Tree | 10L Pot | Prunus 'Kiku-shidare-zakura'
The classic weeping cherry blossom tree
This beautiful plant is a stunning example of the way the seasons change deciduous trees. The leaves of this flowering plant are a gorgeous bronze when young, before turning red with the spring, and light green in summer. Come autumn, they fade to a mellow orange, creating a medley of colours. Combined with the blousey double flowers, which are an elegantly rich pink, this tree will be sure to add a burst of colour to your garden.
Cherry trees are famously hardy and will require little care and attention once established. The more compact, weeping habit of this tree makes it an ideal candidate if you have a smaller space to work with.
Although best planted in the spring or autumn as the weather is mild and damp, the ever prominent beauty of this tree presents itself all year round. We recommend intertwining clematis through the weeping cherry trees foliage to give it an extra boost in vibrancy.

We have developed an eco friendly polypot currently in use across our 10L range. The polypot uses less than 20% of the plastic compared with a normal pot and, unlike most garden center pots, is recyclable. Polypots also prevent root spiraling to encourage a healthier root system.
All trees arrive in a specially made, extra thick, cardboard box with a clamp to hold the pot in place at the bottom of the box. This prevents any movement during transit, keeping your plant safe.
We wrap the roots of our bare root trees and use compost to keep them moist during transport. This extra bit of protection prevents them from drying out and makes sure your tree gets off to a flying start.
We use the same specialised box as our potted trees to ensure safe transit.
