Pam's Picks
The Okame Cherry is a beautifully shaped tree full of pink flower clusters in the spring. They're early bloomers- one of the first trees to signal that spring is here!

I planted in late October of last year and after its first winter in March it bloomed its first pink flower. This tree has settled well and is growing about 2 feet a year.

Okame Cherry

One of the Most Desired Flowering Cherry Trees

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.

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.

It's Easy to Plant your Okame Cherry


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Okame 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 Okame 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 Okame 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 ordered a 2-3 ft Okame Cherry tree a year ago, and I would say it is almost 5 ft now. It has many green leaves now during fall/winter. And also, when I first planted the small 2 1/2 ft plant, in about 3 months it was spring and it blossomed! It grew small pink flowers. Cant wait until next spring to see how many more blossoms it will have. Im sure each year there will be more and more! Thank you very much, I could not find that kind of tree at any of the nurseries where I live in... these make great Texas trees.

I have been purchasing and planting trees on our 50 acre property for 21 years. So many companies have sent me bare rooted trees that never came out of dormancy or died soon after. I started those trees in pots. My husband and I have been in the nursery business of cold hardy palms for 30 yrs. and we know how to start a tree! Your quality cannot be matched.

Planted my Okame Cherry tree In front of the flowerbed. It has grown and the leaves look good. Seems to be quite healthy.

By: Jan in Gainesville, FL
It was not until I ordered some trees from Fast Growing Trees, that I have been pleased with my order of trees online. ALL my trees are alive, in the ground, and thriving. I have been amazed at how well the trees were packaged and mailed...all seemed healthy and showed NO sign of shipping stress. Thank so much for consistently sending us such beautiful and healthy stock.

I planted it in my back yard, and it bloomed right away the next spring. Its really a beautiful flower.

I purchased my Okame Cherry tree last year, planted it and actually thought that it had died once but apparently it was just losing its leaves due to a freak cold spell (I'm a total beginner). I checked the bark as suggested by the FAQ section and it was still okay so I just waited and watched and this Spring, it started thriving. I have beautiful green leaves and it blossomed first red buds and then beautiful pink flowers. It's doing great and growing nicely. I love watching it grow and change and I can't wait until it's huge like the ones in DC!!

I purchased a 6 ft tree spring 2011 and it arrived in a few days. Unforunatey, the tree was totally bare root. That said it has grown over 2 ft in a tree soil mixture. The bamboo stake would not support the tree without a root structure. I emailed Pam a question regarding foilage but did not receive a reply. Im optimistic it will become a beautiful tree and one which I was unable to locate locally.

By: Cecil from Austin TX
I ordered a 4-5 ft last year and it's more than 7 ft now this year. So far it's healthy and blossomed with pink flowers this year. But this year, I been seeing a lot of these trees sold in Austin for $25 for a 12-14 ft size. Which is a great deal. So I bought 5 this year and planted it all in the backyard. Wonderful tree.
