Comments: Floriferous nature with a graceful weeping habit. Spectacular sight each spring as a multitude of pink buds open up to 1" diameter blooms in a soft pink shade. The cascading drooping branches create a gentle sway in the breeze for a soothing affect all summer long. Be sure to plant in an area where you will not have to worry about pedestrians or vehicles crossing underneath the canopy of branches. An underplanting of bulbs, perennials or small shrubs can add a nice touch to the already spectacular scene.
