Who can Identify this?

 This can be found in my front garden - but cannot remember what it is!!? :S ha! Hopefully someone can help? I know, many of you shall be saying it is not a great photo.... But! its the best I can do for now : ) Now this is lovely when in flower, just before the leaves fall they go a lovely red/orange.

I would just like to find out what it is to get some general information - to maintain it etc. Thinking about giving it a good trim!?!? It has some root on it.

Thanks for now

    Cheal's Weeping Cherry usually has a decorative glossy bark, which doesn't appear to be  the case here, but there are other weeping prunuses - we need to see it in flower image

    As it looks as if it's a prunus I wouldn't prune it at this time of year as it will be susceptible to silverleaf.

  • mmhm Looks like I have a few of you thinking now.... : ) (Scracting the head)
    With regard to your Prunus yedoensis 'Shidare-yoshino' It is taller than what I have here.....

    It doesn't have any catkins. image

  • Managed to work it out.... I am sure it is a "Yoshino Weeping Cherry Tree"
    (hope you agree)

    Thank you very much for all your help.

    All the Best
