Prunus pendula 'Pendula Rubra' (Single Pink Weeping Cherry) - 9L Pot

Pendula Rubra is a small deciduous weeping cherry tree with pendulous branches. Its flowers blossom into a deep rose pink from redder buds which looks elegant and beautiful in any garden.

The compact semi-dwarfing growth combined with the classic weeping cherry habit make this a perfect option if you'd like to add colour and a touch of oriental ornateness to a smaller space or front garden.

This tree has been awarded the Award of Garden Merit given by the RHS on account of its stunning display and superb hardiness - it will survive all the UK weather can throw at it and will be happy in most soils with a bit of drainage but does prefer a bit of sun.

Caring and Maintenance

Water young trees regularly until roots are well established. Trim annually from mid to late summer. Apply some fertilizer in spring in order to promote healthy growth and a good crop. Optionally, mulch in spring. Check tree ties regularly and loosen any if necessary to avoid rubbing of the stems.


  • Planting Distance: 6m

Suited to almost all, well-drained and moderately fertile soils with pH between 6.5 and 7.5 in an exposed or sheltered location in full sun.
Before planting your tree, clean up all wandering weeds and keep a clean ring around the tree base. Water well during the first year until well established.

Autumn is the best season for planting trees, as the soil moisture and heat allow easier and faster root establishment and regeneration of damaged root systems.

RHS Award of Garden Merit

The Award of Garden Merit or AGM is an award made to garden plants by the British Royal Horticultural Society after a period of assessment by the appropriate committees of the Society. Awards are made annually after plant trials (which may last for one or more years, depending on the type of plant being trialled) at RHS Garden, Wisley and other RHS gardens, or after observation of plants in specialist collections. This is intended to judge the plants' performance for conditions in the UK.

This is an example of our polypot - note the fruit/ornamental trees we stock will vary in appearance according to species and season.

"Lovely plant. It was in flower when it arrived, was immediately planted and is now gracing my garden. Am after a weeping dwarf cotoneaster; regrettably you don't stock it as I would have bought it from you."
