Create a fairytale wonderland in your garden with the exquisite Prunus 'Snow Showers' tree. It delights the eye in spring with a stunning display of pure white flowers smothering the cascading weeping branches that hang downwards under their weight. The flowers have a light scent and are popular with bees, butterflies and other insects, bringing movement, sound and colour into your garden.
The spring leaves appear later in the season adding to the dramatic look as they contrast in a lovely luscious green amidst the white blossoms. The leaves have an ovate shape with serrated edges and deepen to a darker green in summer. They then turn to wonderful vibrant hues of orange and deep red in autumn before falling.
Your Prunus 'Snow Showers' offers all-year round appeal. In winter it looks particularly attractive with its weeping frame of bare brown branches. If you are lucky enough to get a snow-fall, the tree with its snow-laden branches calls for a photo shoot! Wrap the branches with sparkly fairy-lights and create a mesmerising effect that is sure to warm hearts in the icy cold season.
If you have a small garden or a restricted space, the Weeping Cherry tree is ideal to plant as it maintains a small, compact habit. It is also perfect to grow in a large pot on a sunny patio, where it will create a delightful corner display next to a garden statue or small bubbling water feature.
Prunus 'Snow Showers' is a fully hardy plant and is tolerant of most soil types. It can be planted in full sun and will reach a height of around 3m and a spread of around 3m in a 20 year period.
