|Rosea has a horizontal branching pattern and is wide-spreading. Height is up to 25 feet, spread to 30 feet. Flowers are single, pink blooming from red buds, very early.
Graceful, deciduous tree that is rarely grown out as a species, but rather as a variety of the species: var. pendula, var. autumnalis, etc. Prunus subhirtella var. pendula (Weeping Higan Cherry), is a graft on about a 6 feet rootstock and has a weeping form with single, early spring flowers. Prunus subhirtella var. autumnalis has semi-double flowers that open sporadically in fall and then fully in spring. The form of this tree is more like the true subhirtella. This group of cherries is extremly cold and heat tolerant, and if well established, can be a long-lived ornamental.
