Kwanzan Cherry

Magnificent Pink Blooms

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.

4-5 ft.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

Can I Plant Now?

Yes... Your Kwanzan Cherry can be planted any time of year... even Winter. Roots will continue to grow on warm days, giving your tree a head-start for Spring. 

How do I Request a Different Ship Date?

Call us at 888-504-2001, email us or enter your requested ship date in our shopping cart next to the billing information section. 

Additional Info for Those Who Love to Read:

It's Easy to Plant your Kwanzan Cherry


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

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

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 Kwanzan Cherry 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 Kwanzan Cherry 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.

I bought the Kwanzan Cherry and received it in early March. I planted it immediately. It came as a bare twig, and I was very worried that it wasnt going to be everything I hoped for. Well after 2 weeks it had leaves all over it, and is growing quickly! I backfilled my hole with cow manure from the hardware store when I planted it, so maybe that helped, but this thing is going to be wonderful in a couple of years!

Being from Florida, I do not know much about cherry trees. But I wanted a blooming cherry for my property in the north east Georgia mountains. I took a chance on the Kwazan cherry. I planted it the first of April on the mountain and it leafed out a week later. Then I was thrilled to see all the beautiful double pink blossoms arriving. It was a show! Not bad for a four foot tree. I can just imagine what shell look like when she gets big.

By: Theresa in Chicago, IL
I just love this tree! The second year it grew so much. I cant wait to see how it does this summer. Love the flowers!

By: Kevin in Columbus, NC
A beautiful, healthy tree. Cant wait til my Kwanzan blooms! Thanks again. One of the most beautiful flowering trees.

By: Katherine in San Antonio, TX
I bought the Kwanzan Cherry tree for a sitting area I created in the back...I cant wait until it blooms. This first year, the tree seems to have been getting established and has thicken and strengthened with many buds and leaves. I am hopeful this year the tree grow several feet. Thank YOU...I cant wait to fully enjoy this tree and its beautiful and unique blooms. Im sure to be the envy of the neighbors.

Our Kwanzan Cherry tree arrived larger than expected. We planted the tree and so far its thriving.

By: Emily T
thought mine would be gone bye-bye when I planned a "stick" down and only days later... we went into the worse drought last year here in Austin, TX. But now, it still stands strong, and buds are waiting to bust out in a few weeks... Just awesome!!!


By: Joy Mossbruger
The Kwanzan Cherry was packed very well and arrived in good condition. I planted it last fall and it is doing very well. Even though I bought the smallest size, it has leafed out and bloomed this first year. I look forward to it growing and becoming even better in future years. It is very healthy and I am very pleased.

By: Stephen Stafford
I bought and planted 2 trees in early spring 2012.
The trees are very happy June 2014. I am in Zone 6/7


By: Rick
My wife loved the picture, so we purchased this tree to serve as a showpiece in our front yard. Although it didn't look like much when it first arrived, it has really started to blossom towards the end of the summer. We are far from being expert gardeners, but we're hoping the tree continues to thrive, and look forward to seeing it mature over the coming years.

By: Sharon Garrett
We were so excited to get our Autumn Cherry. Planted it the day it arrived (soil still wet) and now it is dead. I am ordering another one and hope this makes it.

By: Frank DeRosa
I live in Florida and the heat and humidity take a toll on trees and plants. It arrived in great condition and was easy to plant. It produced nice colorful blossoms in its first spring and I am looking forward to more blossoms this Spring. It is a slow grower.

By: Carolyn Jenkins
The trees were packed and shipped carefully. The treeswere in good shape with complete planting instructions. Despite a rough summer here in Georgia, the cherry has survived.

Will the roots damage the foundation under the house? I want to plant it in my backyward or front yard.

How will this plant do in So Cal? We are about 3 miles from the ocean and have a morning marine layer several months a year. Full sun from about 10;00 o'clock on. This will be a parkway tree planted between the street and sidewalk.
