Your new Kwanzan Cherry Tree blooms in large clusters of 3-5 flowers! These clusters are the thickest of all pink flowering trees and look similar to carnations.
Your Kwanzans will begin to bloom in April. Also a delight in the fall, when it will give you golden autumn leaves that grab everyone's attention. If you go to the Washington DC annual Flowering Cherry Festival, you may notice a few microscopic holes in the leaves. This is common with Flowering Cherries and can only be seen upon close inspection. This does not affect the flowering or health of the tree. Most owners never notice it, but it is something we get questions about.
One of the easiest flowering trees to grow! Thrives in almost any soil and climate. Easily grown in zones 5-9. A tree for many seasons!
