Snow Showers is a popular flowering cherry noted for its numerous long weeping branches, which hang in profusion from the main stem. If you are looking for a small weeping flowering cherry as a feature for your garden it is a good choice.
In spring the dense display of white blossom covers the branches, creating an effect which is indeed reminscent of a shower of snow flakes.
The strongly weeping branches can be allowed to cascade naturally all the way to the ground, or can be pruned a short distance from the ground to create a pleasing manicured effect.
