Weeping Cherry Varieties?
Hi, I'm in the process of deciding on a pink weeping cherry to buy. I'm faced with 2 types: Prunus Pendula and Plena Rosea. I'm not that familiar with these trees, and would love to hear what others out there have to say about each type. It sounds like the Plena Rosea has 'double flower' blooms. Do they grow about the same size? Is any one more disease resistant than the other? Do they both have similar growth habits, where the branches will cascade down to ground level? Would love to hear what my peers out there think? Thanks a bunch! Btw, one thing I did notice is that the nursery that I visited is charging $285 for the Prunus Pendula and $450 for th Plena Rosea. It's a huge price difference, and yet they're both the same size. So there has to be something unique about the Plena Rosea that justifies the higher price. Look foward to hearing from you guys:) Thanks!
