Weeping Cherry tree and wisteria tree

Zone 7 | [email protected] added on March 26, 2016 | Answered

The weeping cherry showed that it could be planted in wet soil. It never gave any other information that I could find. Also, do wisteria trees grow in a wet areas? Do not want a hedge between our neighbor.

Well draining soil is very important for the health of a Weeping Cherry Tree.
Root rot will likely kill this tree if it is planted in wet, poor draining soil.

Wisteria can take a more damp soil condition, but standing water or poorly draining soil would also not be recommended.

Addressing drainage issues or amending the soil may be the best step in preparing this area for landscaping.
