Magnificent Pink Blooms

- Hardiest of all cherry trees
- Rapidly grows to a mature height of 30-40 ft.

The Kwanzan Flowering Cherry Tree is easily the showiest of all Cherry Trees. Its flowers aren't just pink... but 'Double Pink,' meaning you get twice as many petals and twice as many blooms as found on other trees.

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!

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
January 1, 2013
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!!

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
January 1, 2013
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.

Kwanzan Cherry
My tree arrived in pretty good shape, taller than I expected. The leaves were somewhat bug eaten and the tree a bit misshapen. That said, the tree seems to be thriving even in the very hot New Mexico summer. This kwanzan cherry was in much better shape than any I could find in Albuquerque, even at a commercial supplier. I look forward to a beautiful bloom next spring.

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

Karibroderick on Sep 30, 2016
I chose the Kwanzan Cherry tree because it has beautiful pink flowers in the Spring and Summer and it turns a beautiful color in the fall. I just recently purchased a modular home with my fiancé. We had to cut down three trees to get our home on the lot we purchased for it. I purchased three Kwanzan Cherry trees to replace the trees we had to cut down. I think they'll be a beautiful addition to our yard. We're also planting roses, azaleas and holly bushes.

Will the roots damage the foundation under the house? I want to plant it in my backyard or front yard.
A shopper on Jul 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Our DF Kwanzan cherry tree was 4 years old when we bought our home. It was still stunning the neighborhood 28 years later (last year) when we sold it. It was 23 feet from the front door, & six (6) feet from our septic field. The only care it got was the annual removal of branches that were too low to walk under. Long branches overhung our sidewalk so, after it bloomed, the fallen blossoms had to be swept away to keep them from being tracked into the house. A minor inconvenience, compared to the glorious vision that filled our front window for @2 weeks every year!
why doesn't my tree bloom? I have two Kwanzan cherry trees and they are 5 years old and growing well and healthy but do not bloom.
Nancy Y on Apr 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There are several reasons you might not have bloom on your Kwanzans. First, and most likely, they are probably not quite mature enough; it can take up to 7 years for a Kwanzan to start blooming. Or there might have been a cold snap in late winter/early spring after the buds started forming that killed them off. you might be giving them too much fertilizer, so the plants are producing lots of foliage, but no blooms.
In your Q & A, you said that early spring or early fall is the best time to plant this. Is it possible to order now, thus taking advantage of the sale, & have it shipped early spring so I can plant it then? I am in Kansas City, MO area.
Sherry D on Nov 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Early spring or early fall are great times to plant, but you can also plant this tree pretty much any time the ground is not frozen or temperatures are not in the 90's! We supply potted plants in the summer, which makes transplanting in hot weather a lot easier on the plant. You will need to pay extra attention watering and keep it moist, but not soggy this first season until the roots get going good, but go ahead and take advantage of the sale!

rachael b on Mar 2, 2015

judith a on Jul 20, 2014

How do these grow in Tampa, Florida?
Luidae on Nov 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I live in just north of Montgomery, Alabama. I live in zone 8.. Spec say it will grow in zone 5-9, you live in zone 9. It should grow fine as long as you water... I make sure mine gets a gallon of water a week , if we get no rain..Dig up grass around tree and replace with mulch to hold moisture in.. DO NOT get the mulch up next to the tree trunk... I have a corrugated pipe around the bottom of my tree so no mulch will touch it..
I am buying 4 how far apart should I plant them?
Eunice H on Oct 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These trees grow fast and need lots of room to spread out. I would say at least 12ft apart, if not more. I planted my kwanzans by themselves in separate parts of my yard. They are doing beautifully, very healthy, little care needed. Good purchase!
How wide is the root system? I bought a sapling as a memorial planting for my brother. He has a HUGE space for this Kwanzan....but his wife finally said "there is no room for a tree". It is now mine. My 2 sides of my yard are on a sloped retaining wall about 20 feet deep. Will the root system damage the retaining wall?
Patricia M on Apr 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We have a granite retaining wall and I have 3 Kwanzan cherry trees planted about 6 ft back from the top of the wall. Where the trees are planted we also have a 20 to 30 degree slope but our trees are doing great! Their root systems are not very destructive and I dont think you should have a problem planting them above your retaining wall. Also this tree is prone to root rot so depending on the type of wall it can also help prevent the soil from saturating to much.
After planting my Kwanzan cherry tree, when can I expect to see it flower for the first time?
Jonathan L on Apr 3, 2016
