    The benefits of the Drop ‘N Grow™ bag…

    These trees are originally grown in a field and naturally have a larger root system than container grown trees. This means you get a plant that will become established quicker and provide you with superior growth in the spring.

    Your tree arrives dormant (sleeping for the winter). Without foliage to support, it doesn't require as much water or nutrients to survive. So transplanting is stress-free.

    If you plant in the winter, your roots will continue to grow and become more established. When spring arrives you will see bright new foliage appearing. 

    These will be the easiest trees you have every planted!  Simply dig your hole, place the Drop ‘N Grow™ bag in the center (burlap included) then use excess dirt to fill the hole.  That’s it!

Prunus 'Kwanzan'

Does Not Ship To:



- 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
December 31, 2012
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
December 31, 2012
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

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!

I recently planted my Kwanzan tree in my yard. The tips of each leaf has turned brown and looks dry. Now sure what's going on with my tree. Can anyone suggest a solution?
Timithy R on May 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My Kawanza tree is doing the exact same thing! I'm thinking it's "wet Feet" due to all the rain that's just been continuous for weeks now here in southeastern Ohio! Ditto for my Okame trees as well! The tree experts at Fast Growing Trees should be able to tell me if I'm right. Nothing I can do about that if I'm right!
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.

Will 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.

Trimming & Pruning

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.
