From Sandy's Garden...

Q. My weeping cherry tree has a lot of growth that is growing straight up, rather than weeping. Can I weigh them down with something to get them to weep?

A. Weeping cherries are grafted onto a cherry rootstock. They often revert to the straight growth of the rootstock, which is what is happening to your tree. The straight growth can outgrow the weeping portion and should be pruned off at its point of origin. Weighing the straight branches down will not train them to weep. Most weeping and contorted trees such as Harry Lauder’s Walking Stick (Corylus avellana ‘Contorta’); Weeping Larch (Larix decidua ‘Pendula’); and Weeping Mulberry (Morus alba ‘Pendula’) are grafted. Any reversion to straight growth should be pruned out as soon as you notice it.
