The Snow Fountain cherry tree, has a weeping habit and is stunning in the spring, when covered with its showy, brilliantly white booms. A small, compact tree, Snow Fountain cherries only grow to about 12 feet (4 m.) tall and wide. The tree’s foliage is alternate and dark green and turns gorgeous hues of gold and orange in autumn. After bursting into bloom in the spring, blossoming is followed by the production of small, red (turning to black), inedible fruit. The weeping habit of this tree makes it especially stunning in a Japanese style garden or near a reflecting pond. When in bloom, the weeping habit dips down to the ground giving the tree the appearance of a snow fountain, hence its name.
