Weeping deciduous tree, usually grafted onto a 1 to 2 metre standard. A graceful tree with slender branches to ground level.  Adapts to most soils but prefers a cool, well-drained, moist soil. Frost resistant but drought tender. Prefers full sun to part shade. Protect from hot winds.  Responds well to hard annual pruning to form an umbrella shape. Prune very early in winter or late autumn to avoid sap loss.
