Weeping fruit trees?

Schlemoc(5)November 16, 2012

Hi,

I have a small island style bed that is fully visible in front of my house from all windows. It is roughly 8'x 15'. There was a bunch of scraggly bushes that I recently removed. I will be putting in a lamp post somewhere in the bed.

There is currently a whole mess of strawberries as groundcover there. What I would like to do is add a dwarf weeping fruit tree, possibly a sweet cherry, or any other "pretty" tree. I would look to keep it around 12' or less in mature height. I was also considering adding in a quince of some sort.

I would be using lillies/tulips for the spring season. Any other thoughts/additions that could be added? I am not sure if there are any fruiting weeping trees, so asking the group here. I'm east of Pittsburgh in Zone 5 for location.

I did see the weeping mulberry and weeping Santa Rosa Plum. I was wondering if there are any other options?

You should post the question in the fruits and orchards forum. You will get more suggestions there. I can't think of any myself but I'm just one guy...
