As one of the largest growers of weeping trees, we know with certainty that these weeping wonders will never disappoint. From magical flowering types to Japanese Maples that make you melt - these 10 are head and shoulders above the rest.“Most weeping trees are grafted onto a suitable rootstock, which forms the trunk of the tree. The tree rarely grows much taller than the height of this graft, instead, the head or canopy of the tree becomes fuller as the tree matures.” Wes
Not all weeping trees are grafted onto a standard, sometimes Fleming’s likes a tree to ‘do its thing’. The Cercis canadensis Lavender Twist™ is a great example of a weeping tree that looks best when left to weep, weep, weep. Lavender Twist™ will start off life as a fairly small insignificant-looking tree but quickly grows to a wide spreading weeper that sweeps the ground and looks absolutely magical.
Japanese Maples are famous for their ability to make hearts melt and look truly lovely when planted in garden beds, as feature plants, and in rockeries.
