They do bloom! I've uploaded some pictures of a small tree with fruits! If there's a fruit, then it means that it used to be a flower before.

This small weeping tree is not only fun for kids to run under in summer. In winter the twisted knotted branches are very interesting too. I just got mine this week and I can't wait to see how it grows over the next year or two. I promise to add another photo in a few years when it has had a chance to mature a bit as it is only 3 years old now. The leaves are rounded and pleasant to touch (unlike some itchy, scratchy weeping trees).
