Is this not the most gorgeous tree you have ever seen?

Brent and I went tree "shopping" the other day. We wanted to get a couple Redbud trees, which we did....they are the ones that are lavender-pink in spring...but while we were there (at this greenhouse) we fell in love with this weeping willow tree that is pink in spring, so we bought one...actually he bought it because I have no money these days, but it was only $45 for a 6 foot tree...it will grow to be 15-20 feet eventually...it is called a Pink weeping Cherry...anyone have one? Are they easy to grow? We planted it and put mulch around it...this is the picture that came with it....

We have one in our back field, they are pretty, but they are also messy. Looks like it snows in pink every year in the fall-

Thats gorgeous!.
I have a huge cherry blossom tree out side mine, but the blossom doesn't stay on long which is a shame

I just flowering trees! Your new tree will really be beautiful, especially if it has pink flowers on it all summer.

Willow's grow great in the right climate and love water. My only advice is to make sure you don't plant it near any water or sewer lines into your house. Their roots will actively seek out and grow into the lines and clog them - spoken from experience.

Wow!!! It's beautiful! I have apple and pear blossoms at the moment, soon to be laden with fruit (I hope!).

Beautiful tree. I love blossom, shame it doesn't last long.

Weeping Willows have always been my favorite. We have loads of them in Prospect Park..."THE park of Brookyn" same guys who designed Central Park, designed Prospect Park. Practically lived there as a kid with my grandfather.
I believe the blossoms don't last long, so we can appreciate them more...if they were there all year we would not appreciate them as much...Mother Nature does know best I guess!

Its the season for planting. I love flowering trees! I just planted a Japanese Flowering Dogwood, which is spectacular as well. Although its not a weeping willow.

Here's a nice picture of what it looks like full grown, mine is just tiny still. Flowering Dogwood

Ooooh! That's also very pretty! I wish I could successfully grow things.. but they usually die on me.

Lovely! Debby, you'll have to keep us updated on it's growth with pics.

Wow that's really beautiful. So's the dogwood.

Debby... They are very pretty..even better when you see them live. The only drawback is, like MA said, they are messy. My neighbor has a few in the front yard, and it snows pink in fall. The petals are so thin that when there is a dew in the morning they stick to everything, it can become a real pain in the backside. But, all in all, I think that it's the only petal dropper that's worth the annoyance.

Beautiful! We lived in a house with a huge Japanese cherry tree in the backyard for a decade when I was a kid - whenever I see pink blossoms, I think of that tree. My siblings and I spent so much time in that tree that when we talk about our childhood, the tree is always mentioned. Perhaps Amber will feel the same way in a few decades.

i personally dont like pink, but if it was green or blue, itd be very pretty.

That is one gorgeous tree. My dad had one in our front yard growing up. Was still there when they moved last year. Ours always looked beautiful but then again, my dad had a real green thumb and worked in the yard a lot.

Do they come in purple? THAT'S what I'd like!

Actually, we've given up on backyard trees, since Pearl ate the sweet acacias. We have a privet and an organ pipe cactus, in the front yard and a renegade mesquite tree has sprouted there, too.

I want a weeping willow but, I'm not sure how to keep Pearl from eating it. If we put a sturdy fence around it, until it gets fairly large, that might work.

That is one gorgeous tree! I'm not a big pink fan, but I like pink flowers, especially in the spring!
