I've had this tree 3 years now and it has grown from approx 3 feet to 15 feet and in a perfect shape providing great shade. Lots of spring blossoms. I plan to purchase more in the future.

Nice looking tree, but look at it closely before planting it that they didn't top your tree like they did mine in order to ship it. Now its not growing correctly and only branching out and not getting any taller.

The tree has been doing well so far. It had beautiful pink buds this spring. It seems to be growing nicely. I am thinking about purchasing a matching tree for the other side of the yard!

Beautiful tree!
I just received and planted this tree on March 7th. I purchased a 5-6 footer and it was probably a little taller than that. It has a very nice shape and started blooming after a week. It is now getting leaves. It was very well packaged. I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend this tree. I can't wait to see how fast it grows!

Not sure how to rate this tree. The main stem is topped. I'm not sure how it will grow. The bark around the bottom foot of the trunk is split and curled like bark on a birch tree. I'm not sure if that is a fatal flaw.

YOSHINO CHERRY JAP - Do not water a ton
Great tree, grows well in Dallas, but DO NOT water a TON. If you water too much the leaves will turn yellow and fall off quickly.

After two years still NO blossoms. They grew about 5 feet since planting. Three trees seem very healthy, the ones that get full sun, and the other two that do not get sun all day are struggling. In Zone 5. FYI watch out for the Japanese beetles

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Yoshino Cherry

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

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

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.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Yoshino 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 Yoshino Cherry again after the transplant is complete.

What is the yearly growth rate of this tree?
A shopper on Jul 8, 2014
Best Answer: I planted it in November 2012. By June 2014 I would say it's added over a foot. Maybe even closer to 2 feet. The Cleveland Pear that was planted a few months earlier has put on easily 2+ feet. These trees are planted in the front yards so they receive regular "shallow" watering from the grass sprinklers. My soil is very clay-like so if you have soil that has better drainage then you should expect even better growth. I also used "roots solupaks" on these trees 1 or 2 times, but since they receive regular lawn fertilizing and watering I reserve the solupaks for the trees in the backyard

I bought this tree a year and a half ago. I am in zone 5. The first spring we had a late frost when the tree was just beginning to bud. Only one flower appeared but the tree developed leaves. Last fall we had a warm November and I noticed the tree started to bud. The buds are still there this spring but they are black. I'm not sure if they are dead or not. Should I leave them to see what happens or should I nip them off?

when is the best time of year to plant the yoshino?
jean f on Mar 30, 2016
Best Answer: I live in Ohio and the trees were shipped in April. I imagine you could plant in either spring or fall. If you plant in the spring, you do have to water, but you can monitor the health of the tree and prune. If you plant in the fall, you do nothing and hope it survives the winter. Some prefer fall, though, b/c it gives the tree a good start in the spring...preference

I planted my tree ysterday (9/26/15) zone 7 and all the leaves wilted. Is this normal? It is still quite hot here.
Rosanna T on Sep 28, 2015
Best Answer: I live in the northern half of zone eight. I have had no problems. It sounds like a lack of water, as long as the leaves are not turning yellow which can be an indication of over watering. As long as the leaves are green, good watering will eliminate the wilting. Also, talk with a university agricultural extention in your area about the right time to fertilize new trees entering the fall season.

Best Answer: I bought my tree in the winter but I didn't plant it till the spring now has been a year that I have the tree and it seems to be fine with leaves on the branch. I don't know why yours have no leaves ? Maybe because the weather is still too cold just give it some time when the weather is warmer the leaves sure will come out,good luck.

I live in Fallon, NV which is Zone 7. I am concerned about the soil. Is there any particular soil it needs so it will thrive and bear flowers?
emily v on Nov 27, 2014
Best Answer: They grow best in moist, well-drained, acidic soil (around 6.5 to 7.0 pH) in a spot that receives full to partial sun. For the best results use a soil testing kit before planting to be sure your soil isn’t too acidic or alkaline. The best time to plant the cherry tree is in the spring after the last frost, or in the fall about six weeks before the first frost.
