Autumn Cherry Tree

Enjoy Blooms in Spring, Autumn and even Winter!

Height:

The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back the growth that was trimmed.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you better results the first full growing season.

• Delicate white flowers all season 
• Most cold-hardy flowering tree available 
• Relatively drought tolerant 

Imagine bright white blooms in your yard when all other trees are a dull green. 

These semi-double blooms burst with color in the springtime… but what makes this tree so unique is that its flowers appear again in the fall (when other trees are losing their leaves) and during warm winters (when trees are usually dormant). 

A great choice near gardens, small areas, or anywhere you would like to add color. 

Picture having the only tree in your neighborhood that gives you beautiful blooms when the weather turns cold. 

If you have trouble with flowering trees in your area, try the Autumn Flowering Cherry. It can grow almost anywhere.

It's Easy to Plant your Autumn Cherry Tree

Specific Directions for Autumn Cherry Tree

Plant your Autumn Cherry Tree in an area the receives full to partial sunlight. Autumn Cherry Trees can get 20 to 40 feet tall and 15 - 25 feet, so make sure that your Autumn Cherry Tree has enough room to flourish.

Autumn Cherry Trees prefer slightly acidic soil but will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Water your Autumn Cherry Tree once every two to three weeks. Only give your tree extra water during times of drought.

Fertilize your Autumn Cherry Tree in the early Spring and Early Fall with a well balanced all purpose fertilizer. Your Autumn Cherry Tree will produce white to pink blooms every Spring and Fall. Often in the Summer and during mild winters your Autumn Cherry Tree may bloom again.


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Autumn Cherry Tree.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Autumn Cherry Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Autumn Cherry Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Although the received tree was a sapling about 7 feet tall, and I was pleased with its height, its height was less than what I had been led to believe it would be (closer to 10 feet). The tree is still in its first year of planting, so I cannot comment on its flower production. My garden soil dries quickly, and the tree requires daily watering or it begins to wilt.

I was blown away by how quickly the tree took off. We received and planted it in late fall/early winter, and in early spring we got our first beautiful blooms. Extremely happy with it

I bought this tree - zone 9 It looked like a twig when we planted it.The local gardening stores had never heard of a cherry blooming 3 seasons, so I was not sure what to think.Well I am pleased to say it's been 2 years & it loves its new home and has tripled in size. It kinda looks like a very large bush now. We wanted it to get a good root system before pruning. It is a beautiful hardy tree.I want to order 2 more, but I see they are sold out for now. I'll try later.Gorgeous tree. I look forward to watching it grow. Would highly recommend. (But let me get my 2 more 1st! LOL

I bought one of these trees last fall and was thrilled to see it adapted really well. It bloomed the first spring and it's growing beautifully! In comparison, I bought a Kwanzan cherry tree from a local big box store at the same time, and it still hasn't bloomed... I'm very pleased with the quality from fastgrowingtrees.com :

Does this tree produce any fruit?
A shopper on Aug 11, 2014
Best Answer: I purchased this tree two years ago. It arrived as a sapling. It now is only 3.5' tall and only has approx 5-6 little branches on it...At this rate I'm doubtful at my age (66) that I will live long enough to even see it bloom.No it produces no fruit.

How do you ship the trees?
Lynda S on May 31, 2014
Best Answer: The shipping is fine. The tree comes potted, stapled into in a carton. I don't remember if it was shipped UPS or USPS, but I received a 7-ft tree in good shape (SC to NY).

I will add, though, that my 7-foot tree had a bare section (no branches, no leaves) about 1 1/2 feet long just above the midway point of the trunk; and its upper branches also were bare along their lower portions.

This is my second year with the tree, and those bare sections have never filled in. I also had only a handful of blossoms this spring, but that may be due to the tree's location or other factors beyond the control of the nursery.

Is it possible to get the Autumn Flowering Cherry tree with just one main trunk? I don't want a tree that has many trunks directly out of the ground.
Jean T on Jun 4, 2014
Best Answer: hello,
i bought a small vrrsion of this tree so there wss only 1 fork on it but the main trunk was well defined. since it was planted over a year ago there is still a main trunk (thicker now) with many branches sprouting off it. hope this gives you a better idea of what to expect.

how will the root system of this tree affect my house or any piping?
Antonio S on Jun 1, 2014
Best Answer: My Autumn Cherry Tree is really to young to answer this question since I have had it in the ground only 2 years. My tree is planted along side a planned road on a 2,5 acre lot and no where near a house. It is near an irrigation line but I doubt that pipe will be impacted at all.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
