I did some research and learned how to take care of it. I pruned it in January and fertilized it with compost in Spring. In researching the tree, I read conflicting information on pruning. Some sites said to prune after the flowers fall off in spring and others said to prune during January when the tree is dormant. I chose January since I was pruning the grapevines anyway at that time. It's worked out well for me so far.
I've learned that some weeping cherry trees do produce fruit, but mine isn't one that does. Since it was here before we were, I'm not quite sure if it's a dwarf or only a few years old. Time will tell on that one I suppose. I hope it's only a few years old though. They only live around 30-40 years which isn't terribly long for a tree! I do think it's one of the grafted varieties though, from looking at the way it grows.
