Prunus persica 'Weeping Double Red'

What is striking about this ornamental Weeping Double Red Peach Tree -- and we mean really striking -- is its abundance of double pinkish-red (leaning toward mauve) blossoms in early spring. For good flower, prune heavily after bloom, and avoid high-nitrogen fertilizers. [Note: The one at the corner of this building, pictured here, lost a large limb during an icy storm in January 2014; but it was still killer handsome in April.] * Occasionally Damaged by Deer*
