    A beautiful weeping tree that is ideal for the smallest gardens and will thrive in large tubs. Its long, weeping branches are smothered in pure white flowers in March and April and create a cascade effect. The flowers are produced on the current year's growth, so the branches can be pruned hard each year after flowering if required. The leaves are small, mid-green, and turn lush shades of burgundy and red in autumn.

    This is a top-grafted plant, so it has a nice and bushy crown. This grafting process also helps keep the plant compact.

  • Garden care: When planting, incorporate lots of well-rotted compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. If potting up use John Innes No3 compost and make sure it is kept well watered during warm weather. Any necessary pruning should be done in summer to reduce the risk of bacterial canker canker.

    Comments about Crocus Prunus'Hillings Weeping':

    Our tree is almost five years old .It stands close to the path in our tiny front garden which is the first of four in a long inner city road. The tree gives much pleasure to everyone who passes it. It's name, Hillings weeping, is often asked and we are glad to tell people that it owes nothing to our skill as gardeners, it's just perfect in itself.
