Weeping Cherry Information

The weeping cherry is a small ornamental tree with a weeping, or umbrella, shape. The branches hang down dramatically, creating an elegant shape popular in landscaping. Weeping pink snow showers ( Prunus x ‘Pisnshzam’ syn Prunus ‘Pink Snow Showers’) are just a variety of weeping cherry, but it’s a show stopper.

This variety will reach about 8 meters (25 feet) tall and 6 feet (6 feet) wide and produce an abundance of pale pink flowers in early spring. Once the flowers are finished, the tree will turn out dark green leaves that turn golden in the fall. The flowers and leaves contrast nicely with the dark red bark.

It prefers full sun and moist, well-drained soil. Your weeping cherry tree will tolerate poorer soil but may not grow as well. Your Cherry Snow Snowers will need regular water, especially in hot, dry weather. Regular watering is especially important in the first year of establishing roots. By the second year, you should be able to cut back.

Light pruning in late winter or early spring before flowers appear or after finishing will help maintain your tree’s health and weeping form. This tree is particularly prone to the development of water sprouts and suckers. Small sticks stick up and destroy the crying effect, so they should be removed as they appear. Watch out for pests and signs of disease and take steps to combat them early. Weeping cherry trees are prone to Japanese beetle and trunk infestations, as well as trunk canker disease and frost crack in the trunk.

Growing and caring for a Pink Snow Showers tree is a worthy effort to get the beautiful landscape feature. This tree looks stunning wherever you put it but is especially suited to aquatic elements due to its weeping form.

Cherry pruning

Here is a controversial subject because the pruning of the cherry tree tends to weaken the tree and becomes a source of many diseases.

However, it is sometimes necessary to prune if the cherry tree becomes too large or certain branches become too fragile.

  • The cherry tree does not support pruning; it must be reduced to a strict minimum.
  • Remove dead, weak, or broken branches.
  • If a branch breaks, immediately apply a healing putty to the wound.
  • Healing mastic prevents the appearance of diseases and fungi.

If you have a cherry tree that is too big, prune it in August or September. And immediately protect it with a healing putty.

Cherry diseases

The cherry tree is a fruit tree that is relatively susceptible to disease.

It is therefore advisable to prune it as little as possible because each pruning is a source of entry for mushrooms. If you must prune, remember to sterilize your tools before pruning and apply a sealant to wounds after pruning your cherry tree.

  • Cherry fly: Cherries are attacked by fly larvae, and holes are formed in the cherries.
  • Aphids: Cherry leaves curl and lose their original color; they turn yellow or become discolored.
  • Mealybugs: White or pink mealy-looking clusters form on branches and leaves
  • Moniliosis: cherries rot on the tree.
  • Monilinia fructicola spots appear on the cherries, which end up rotting.

Birds that eat cherries, what to do?

Watch out for the damage that birds can do to the cherry tree.

Birds can rob you of the harvest in just a few days.

  • The ideal is to use a protection net against birds you buy in a specialized store.
  • They can be deterred by installing aluminum foil or old CDs on the branches.
  • But the birds quickly become familiar with this kind of stratagem

Varieties of cherry trees

If you plant several cherry trees, mix the varieties to stimulate pollination and fruiting.

If you only plant one, choose a so-called self-fertile variety such as the summit bizarre or the sweetheart bigarreau for your desserts and preserves.

The bigarreau cherry tree is a safe bet among cherry trees. Among the bigarreau cherries, the best known are the Burlat cherry, Cœur de pigeon or gros Cœurlet, Esperen, Hedelfingen, Napoléon, Rainier, Reverchon, Stark Hardy Giant, Summit, or even Van.

It is essential to plant a self-fertile variety when there is only one cherry tree because you will not have cherries without it.

You can also choose the Montmorency cherry tree; its fruits will allow you to make delicious clafoutis that will amaze and delight your children as well as your guests.

The Cherry tree is one of our gardens’ most widespread and appreciated fruit trees. Depending on the variety, it produces cherries ( Prunus cerasus ) such as ‘ Burlat,’ ‘ Napoleon,’ or ‘ Coeur de Pigeon,’ the tastiest, sweetest cherries, or morello cherries ( Prunus avium ), more acidic, perfect for jams, preserves, brandy. While some cherry trees are self-fertile, others need to have a different variety of cherry trees nearby, within a radius of 20 to 30 m, to allow good fruiting. Most sour cherries are self-fertile.

Rustic, the cherry tree is a fruit tree that can withstand temperatures down to -20°C and is therefore suitable for all regions of France. We also offer you the essential varieties in plants from Organic Farming.

Discover a selection of the best cherry trees with their characteristics to find the ideal variety for your garden and make the right choice!


Cherry ‘Belle Magnifique’ crosses Bigarreau-type “sweet cherries” and morello cherries. It produces what is called guides: round, scarlet red, and shiny cherries with a mild flavor, sweet and tangy like bizarre cherries but with a more tender flesh than the latter. This cherry, or guide, is a good table fruit and a good candidate for making delicious desserts, clafoutis, pies, etc. The harvest takes place from mid-July and lasts until the end of the month. Very hardy, above -15°C, this late-harvest cherry will withstand the harshest winters but may suffer from too hot summers.

It is a self-fertile variety that does not need to be associated with another variety for pollination, which is practical for small gardens. Note, however, that it will bear fruit better if it is planted near a variety of Bigarreau: ‘Burlat,’ ‘Reverchon,’ ‘Marmotte,’ or ‘Napoleon.’


The ‘Burlat’ variety is the most widely grown table cherry and undoubtedly one of the best! Its large sweet fruits are also used in pies, clafoutis, jams, and preserves. It is an early and productive variety, providing large cherries with dark red skin and sweet, juicy, firm, and crunchy flesh from the end of May. Not self-fertile, it needs to be associated with a Bigarreau cherry tree ‘Napoléon,’ ‘Reverchon,’ or ‘Van,’ which will be planted nearby. 


Cherry ‘Bigarreau Napoléon’ is an essential and very vigorous variety. From the beginning of June, it provides very recognizable fruits with their yellow color tinged with red. The flesh is white and juicy, and the colorless juice does not stain. Its cherries keep well and are suitable for making pies, clafoutis, jams, and preserves and for processing into brandy, liquor, and alcohol.

This non-self-fertile variety needs to be associated with a Cherry Bigarreau ‘Burlat’ or ‘Van’ nearby to bear fruit. It is also a good pollinator for other varieties.


The ‘Coeur de Pigeon’ variety is distinguished by its large, heart-shaped fruits. Its bright-skinned, light-red cherries reveal firm, crunchy, slightly acidic yellow flesh. They can be enjoyed in cakes, pies, clafoutis, fruit salads, and jams. It is a very vigorous variety which fruits in June.  

Not self-fertile, it will need a ‘Napoleon’ or ‘Burlat’ cherry tree nearby to ensure good fruiting.

The ‘Coeur de Pigeon’ cherry is very tasty.


It is one of the best pollinating varieties for other cherry trees. Not self-fertile, the ‘Van’ cherry tree is pollinated by the ‘Napoleon’ or ‘Burlat’ varieties, which must be nearby. From mid-June, it offers dark red, shiny-skinned cherries with firm, crunchy, sweet flesh containing a small stone. In addition, they resist well to bursting. Like all bizarre cherries, its sweet table cherries lend themselves to an infinite number of recipes such as pies and clafoutis.


The Cherry Bigarreau Hâtif Delbard enjoys the characteristics of its vigorous rootstock. Unlike some varieties, this cherry offers a fairly rapid fruit set after only 5 or 6 years and very regular and fairly abundant productivity. Suitable for all regions of France, it is more adaptable to dry climates and all types of soil. The harvest is early: from the beginning of June, you can pick very large dark red fruits with particularly firm flesh that resists splitting. It would help if you had the proximity of another compatible cherry-like ‘Delice de Malicorne’ and the bizarre ‘Burlat.’


Cherry  ‘Cherry Boop is an exceptional variety! In July, it produces cherries of excellent taste quality. His particularity? This dwarf cherry will not exceed 2 meters in height. It is perfect for smaller gardens and can easily be grown in a pot on the terrace. ‘Cherry Boop is also self-fertile and bears fruit very quickly, after only one or two years. After 4/5 years of cultivation, this cherry tree produces, on average, about fifteen kilos of cherries per year.


The Bigarreau ‘Reverchon’ cherry tree produces large dark red sweet cherries with crunchy and tasty flesh harvested from mid-June. These cherries resist well to bursting. It is a non-self-fertile variety that must be associated with a nearby Bigarreau ‘Napoleon,’ ‘Burlat’ or ‘Hedelfingen’ cherry tree. It is a cherry tree of good vigor and good longevity.


The ‘Griotte de Montmorency’  is an old variety that produces juicy and sour cherries, a thin skin of bright red color and tender flesh, and colorless juice. These sour cherries are ideal for processing (jams, preserves, liqueurs, eau-de-vie). They are harvested in June. Not needing to be associated with another variety for pollination, it is a perfect cherry tree for small gardens!


Here is a very amazing cherry variety! The Griotella ‘Frumi’ dwarf cherry tree is an exceptional cherry tree that is very productive even when young. It is a small cherry tree grafted in 1/4 stem, very decorative with its slightly weeping port: it will keep a development so reduced (no more than 2 m in height at adulthood) that it can be grown in pots. It is a self-fertile variety, which does not need to be associated with another variety to bear fruit. From June, it produces shiny red cherries with melting and tangy flesh. A perfect variety for small spaces!
