Weeping tree?

Asked May 13, 2019, 11:24 PM EDT

Hi there, I have been trying to find a weeping tree that is safe for zone four that is not vulnerable to Japanese beetles. This would replace a beautiful dappled willow that unfortunately died. If I could get super fortunate, I would especially like a flowering deciduous tree. Any suggestions?

A Weeping Cherry Tree might fill the bill for you. It likes moisture and can tolerate clay soils and is hardy in Zone 4. I suggest you contact a local nursery for availability. Google it to see pictures.
