Description: Prunus pendula is an ornamental weeping cherry tree that is native to Japan. ‘Pendula Rosea’ is a cultivar that typically grows 15-25′ tall with a pronounced weeping form and light pink to rose-pink flowers. The flowers bloom in 2 to 5-flowered umbels in late winter to early spring before the leaves emerge. Flowers are followed by rounded pea-sized fruits (to 1/3” diameter) that are sometimes sparse. Fruits eventually mature to black, but are basically inedible. Fruits may not appear in some years. Elliptic to ovate, doubly serrate, green leaves (to 4” long) turn red or yellow in fall. Nomenclature on this tree is a bit confusing. Many weeping cherries including the within cultivar may still be incorrectly sold as cultivars of Prunus x subhirtella.
