Beautiful Ornamental Tree with Eyecatching Blooms
You won’t believe your eyes when you see the Pink Cascade Weeping Peach Tree’s bright pink flowers and gorgeous cascading branches!
Produced in the early 1990s, the Prunus persica Pink Cascade variety is a completely ornamental peach tree with desirable hot pink double flowers that line the branches starting in early spring. It is typically one of the first flowering trees to bloom and signal the start of spring. With alluring weeping branches that sweep alongside the trunk of the tree, the green foliage will form after the flowering period and stays on the tree all year long until winter.
Leaves emerge with a reddish purple tint from spring to summer and turn a golden yellow or greenish in the fall to produce some beautiful fall colors. In warmer climates, the leaves may begin turning green by late summer.
Being a deciduous tree, the dark green leaves will fall to the ground as temperatures fluctuate for fall and winter. This leaves the weeping branches to sway alongside the trunk of the tree to ground level with grace. This ornamental tree does not produce edible fruit and rarely has pest or disease issues.
Plant this unique tree somewhere it can be seen and enjoyed in your garden. The small size and stature make it perfect for small garden spaces or containers.
PINK WEEPING PEACH TREE CARE
Grow this Weeping Peach across the United States in USDA hardiness zones 5-9. It is very cold hardy but can also tolerate heat and drought once established. Well draining soil that is kept moist and slightly acidic is most suitable to help this tree perform best. This pink flowering peach grows more enjoyable in full sun to help produce the bushels of brightly colored pink blossoms.
Water the small tree thoroughly to help establish a strong root system and mulch with a thick 2-inch layer of organic matter to help retain moisture during the active growing seasons.
What is the Pink Weeping Peach Tree Growth Rate?
This pink peach tree can grow up to 12-15 feet tall and wide at maturity. It has a moderate growth rate of up to 1-2 feet per year. Given the appropriate growing conditions with nutrient-rich soil and at least 6-8 hours of direct sun, the tree can exhibit fast growth rates. An annual application of Slow Release Fertilizer will help increase the tree’s growth rate.
All About Pruning Ornamental Peach Trees
You can let the tree grow to its full potential or you can keep it pruned to your desired height and width. In order to keep the flower production at its prime, it is necessary to prune back the arching branches every year or flower production will suffer. The best time to prune weeping peach trees is in late winter or early spring before the tree blooms for the best outcomes. Pruning will also help maintain a desirable shape for your tree. Remove dead, damaged branches, or crossed branches at any time of the year to encourage new growth. Be sure to not cut into the branch collar when you are making your cuts.

Perfect Plants’ shipping specialists carefully package your plants using a proven packaging method that ensures your plants arrive healthy, colorfully alive and ready to flourish. We’ve coined the term ‘upside down box test’ and we do just that; we carefully package so that regardless of the direction your box is handled, it will not harm your precious plant that’s inside.
No shipping process is without a problem from time to time. On rare occasions some plants may experience some of the following during their transit: drooping, minor leaf-loss and/or minimal yellowing/discoloration, minor limb damage, etc. These instances are quite rare, but can happen when shipping plants in boxes.
Plants normally recover within a few weeks after planting. If a damaged box has injured your plant on the inside, please notify us within 5 days of receiving you package(s) by emailing us a photograph of the damage.
We always do our very best to ensure that your plants are packed and shipped in the safest, gentlest and most effective way possible.
Will my plants and trees look like the photographs?
Absolutely! Unlike other online nurseries, our photos are of actual plants and trees we’ve grown here, on our family operated nursery.
Growing our own plants and trees helps to ensure we ship you the best quality plants that are free of pests and diseases.
Your plants and trees may however not ship with flowers on them, like the photographs. This all depends on the time of year you buy your plant or tree. Crape Myrtle trees, for example, only bloom during the summer months, so if you purchase one during the spring or fall, they would ship without flowers. Once planted, your plants will grow and thrive giving you flowers for many years to come!
Pot sizes (commonly referred to in gallons) are shipped in the same size nursery trade pots which may vary in actual volume. Some plants may have been at the approximate pot size listed, but require excess dirt to be removed so that you will not be paying any additional shipping costs. This doesn’t happen very often though.
Our shipping charges are based on the value of your order and the destination it is being shipped. Please see the chart on the Shipping Info page to get an exact amount. We frequently have a free shipping promotion to help you save!
Choose a planting location that offers adequate sunlight and shade in a low traffic area. Allow proper clearance for the mature growth size. Well-drained soil is ideal. Water regularly for the first planted year to ensure adequate water is available for establishing a strong root system. Prune as necessary to remove any damaged or dead foliage and to promote a well-balanced structure.
Dig a hole approximately twice as wide as your new plant’s root ball and deep enough so that the top of the root ball is equal with the ground level.
Loosen the root ball using a small garden spade or by hand. Breaking smaller outer roots can encourage growth into the new soil, but take care to not damage large primary roots.
Place the plant in the hole and ensure that it is situated evenly upright. Use the excavated soil to fill in around the root ball, using your foot to pack it in firmly. Thoroughly soak with a hose as you fill in the dirt. Take great care to not leave any gaps or air spaces around the root ball as this could kill the plant.
A 2-4 inch layer of mulch is strongly recommended to help retain moisture and discourage weed growth. Apply mulch over the entire planting area but keep away from the stems or trunk by a few inches. Ensure that the plant and surrounding soil is completely soaked with water.
To ensure the proper nutrients are available for the life of your plant our proprietary Perfect Plants Special Blend Soil and a once yearly application of Nutricote Total 360 Fertilizer are great considerations for your new plants!
