‘Sendai-shidare’ (weeping Sendai cherry). A small Sato-zakura (village cherry), often no more than a shrub, named for the Sendai region of coastal northern Honshu, Japan, where it presumably originated. ‘Sendai-shidare’ produces horizontal branches that droop at the tips. The April-borne, fragrant flowers hang on short, glabrous (hairless) pedicels and have five white petals that are backed by long, narrow sepals. This small cherry is seldom encountered in public plantings.
