  Grower Tips  

  1. Graftwood is available December to March.
    Supply is limited, so order early!
  2. We recommend grafting as you would any cherry.
    – For a balanced head, when the graft reaches
    6 inches cut off 2/3 of the new growth.
    – Let flush a second time.
    – When it reaches 6 inches again, cut off 2/3 of
    new growth.
  3. Easily grown as a container or B&B tree.

       Testimonial       

“Our nursery started growing Weeping Extraordinaire 10 plus years ago.

We have found this selection to be a vigorous grower that easily produces a #1 head with a first years graft.

The limbs, foliage and flowers have a ‘Kwanzan’ cherry look.

The fall foliage turns shades of burgundy and holds its leaves longer than other cherries.”
