The pink cherry willow is actually not a willow tree. The Higan Cherry is often referred to as the Pink Cherry Willow because of it swooping branches. This trees grows 20 to 30 feet tall and spreads 15 to 25 feet wide. Leaves remain green throughout the summer, and in the fall they turn a vivid yellow before falling off the tree to make it bare in winter.
