weeping cherry

My partner just took me to task because I bought a weeping cherry and he says it’s messy, bug prone and, in general, a bad choice. Is he correct? And should I just 86 the tree and find a weeping willow?

To begin, here’s an article on weeping cherry: [1]
I don’t think they are particularly messy (except when they drop petals,) or insect prone, but your partner may have had a bad experience with one — there are many different varieties. You would want to make sure the cultivar you have is suited to your site in terms of mature size and hardiness.
However, in the interest of domestic tranquility, there are lots of other ornamental small trees that you could use. I suggest you consult with the local Extension Service — they can advise you on both the weeping cherry, and on other possible trees. This link will help you locate the nearest E.S. office: [2]
