The name of this small weeping cherry tree is ‘Snow Fountain. ‘ It gets that name from the masses of white flowers–not from the fact that it gets covered with late season snow as it is about to open! (This was round 1 of the snow–2 inches on Sunday–after it had all but melted away. Round 2 on Monday gave us 4 more inches that still remained as of today!)
This is the first time in 16 seasons that I have seen this happen so this is really unusual for us. Unlike the magnolia flowers that get killed off at least once every 5 years, this is truly exceptional.
If I don’t see this again for another 16 years, that will be fine!
