Yoshino Cherry

Most Popular Flowering Cherry Tree

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.

It's Easy to Plant 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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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!

The tree is doing great. Nice blooms the first summer after we planted it. It is still in a pot on a 5th floor deck in brooklyn getting blasted by the sun for most of the day.

What time of year is best to plant this tree?
A shopper on Jun 14, 2014
Best Answer: I bought the tree in late winter and they delivered it in April, as I recall. I planted it in an oversize pot and it grew nicely all summer. I would either plant in early spring after last frost or in late summer, after the last of the really hot weather. Unfortunately, late in the first year its drainage got plugged and the plant suffered from drowned roots while we were away on vacation. I lost a lot of its growth, but the remainder is doing OK this year. I hope this is helpful.

what causes leaves to turn yellow and drop? Due to extreme last winter tree did not fully flower in the spring. What needs t be done?
A shopper on Jul 9, 2014
Best Answer: I'm sorry to say my trees did not last through their first winter either. I bought two and planted them in the fall of 2012. They tried to bloom in the spring of 2013 but did what yours are doing. Quickly dropped leaves and went dormant. We waited through the summer hoping they would come back, but they didn't. Both were totally gone by fall 2013.

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

A shopper on Jul 13, 2014

What color do the leaves turn in the fall?
A shopper on Jun 8, 2014
Best Answer: The leaves range in color from light to medium green. I live in Oklahoma and the tree is located at the front side of my house which is the southwest corner. I haven't noticed a change in leaf color between the seasons.
