Hi I'm new to the Hortboard, but am seriously investigating varieties of Flowering Cherry Trees. I live just below Grouse Mountain on Vancouver's north shore. I would like to replace a dead pine tree with a flowering Cherry. It will have full sun and not be overshadowed by anything. I have been leaning towards the variety of Shidare-yae-zakura, I do want something that weeps and is a double pink. However not sure if this variety is suited to my location. I understand that soil type and amount of water is crucial to the successful growth of the cherry tree. Anything else I need to know? Also can anyone suggest a good supplier in Vancouver, of reasonably mature trees. Thanks for your help.
