Another one of Barry’s Nursery’s specialties is our Snow Fountains trees.
As a weeping tree, Snow Fountains Cherry features cascading branches that dip all the way to the ground, giving it the appearance of a white fountain when covered with pure white flowers in early spring. This cultivar is known by several different names, including ‘Snofozam’ Weeping Cherry and ‘White Fountain’ Cherry.
This deciduous garden tree grows to 6’-12’ in height and 5’-12’ in width. It bears leaves arranged in an alternating fashion which are 3” long and 2” wide. During the summer the leaves are dark green, while in the fall they turn gold and orange before they are shed. Bloom starts in late April and extends for three weeks. The flowers are small, white and five-petaled. Occasionally, small red, later turning to black, fruit form as the flowers fade. Fruit are not edible. Butterflies and hummingbirds are attracted to the bloom.
