Japanese flowering cherries are characterized by their attractive bark and pink flowers that appear before the foliage in spring. Weeping Extraordinaire™ has very profuse, double, pale pink flowers appearing in April on weeping stems. Leaves come on shortly after and emerge copper-colored before changing to glossy dark green. The deciduous serrated leaves eventually turn burgundy-red in autumn. Japanese flowering cherries prefer moist, well-drained fertile soils in full sun to part shade. Trees may be short lived in Northern climates.
