    The benefits of the Drop ‘N Grow™ bag…

    By growing these trees in burlap bags, the roots grow into the cloth, rather than circling around a pot. This forces these trees to put out thousands of fine hair roots. These roots bring moisture and nutrients into the plants. This means you get a tree that will become established quicker and provide you with superior and faster growth.

    These will be the easiest trees you have ever 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!

Enjoy Blooms in Spring, Autumn and even Winter!

- Delicate pale-pink flowers all season
- Most cold-hardy flowering tree available
- Relatively drought tolerant

Your Tree Blooms when others are Bare or Brown.

These semi-double blooms burst with color in the springtime... but what makes this tree so unique is that its flowers appear again in the fall (when other trees are losing their leaves) and during warm winters (when trees are usually dormant).

A great choice near gardens, small areas, or anywhere you would like to add color.

Picture having the only tree in your neighborhood that gives you beautiful blooms when the weather turns cold.

If you have trouble with flowering trees in your area, try the Autumn Flowering Cherry. It can grow almost anywhere.

I bought this tree - zone 9 It looked like a twig when we planted it.The local gardening stores had never heard of a cherry blooming 3 seasons, so I was not sure what to think.Well I am pleased to say it's been 2 years & it loves its new home and has tripled in size. It kinda looks like a very large bush now. We wanted it to get a good root system before pruning. It is a beautiful hardy tree.I want to order 2 more, but I see they are sold out for now. I'll try later.Gorgeous tree. I look forward to watching it grow. Would highly recommend. (But let me get my 2 more 1st! LOL

I bought one of these trees last fall and was thrilled to see it adapted really well. It bloomed the first spring and it's growing beautifully! In comparison, I bought a Kwanzan cherry tree from a local big box store at the same time, and it still hasn't bloomed... I'm very pleased with the quality from :

I was blown away by how quickly the tree took off. We received and planted it in late fall/early winter, and in early spring we got our first beautiful blooms. Extremely happy with it

My favorite purchase from this site! Strong, resilient, and flowering in Spring and Fall!! So beautiful in my garden
January 1, 2013
Love it!
I am thoroughly pleased with how the Autumn Cherry arrived! Despite summer shipping, shipment to zone 8, it arrived well packed, well watered and thriving. I followed the recommendations, set it in the shade, outside for a few days, before putting it in the ground. It is now well planted, using the soil additions also ordered, and it is doing just Great! I ordered the 6 ft tree, and it was definitley 6 ft, and probably a bit more. There is a ton of new growth on it already and it's only been in the ground a few weeks. I'm also pleased that the pruning already done will help it grow into the single main trunk I prefer. Wonderful tree, expect great things from it!

Lovely tree!
We bought one of these last summer. It did great here in MN. It grew fast, and got white flowers twice the first summer and fall! This spring it bloomed again. It has pretty pink and white blooms.
So, this summer we bought another one. That one is growing slower than the first one we have. But, still doing well. It did not bloom yet either. But, we hope it will bloom in the fall.

I purchased this tree back in February 2015 and in the first few weeks I began seeing blooms. I purchased the bare root 5-6 ft and it was exactly that size.

The tree since then has began to wilt and loose its leaves. The ground I have it is is a composition of clay and also potting soil. It has been raining quite a bit since I last planted so it has received plenty of natural water and that may be the reason the leaves are falling as the tree may have been getting too much water.

Even though the tree hasn't taken off like I have wanted, I would still recommend this tree as the beauty of it, even though it is small, is nothing short of breathtaking when it is in full bloom.

Very impressed with the shipping dept. Surprised at the size of the tree we received. Put it in the ground immediately and it is doing very well. Can't wait for it to grow and blossom. We will definitely be return buyers.

Although the received tree was a sapling about 7 feet tall, and I was pleased with its height, its height was less than what I had been led to believe it would be (closer to 10 feet). The tree is still in its first year of planting, so I cannot comment on its flower production. My garden soil dries quickly, and the tree requires daily watering or it begins to wilt.

The description says Flowers multiple times each year. If winter mild can flower in winter. Austin, Texas gets mild winters often. Only worry is can it take the 100 plus summer heat.

Does the Autumn Cherry drop it's leaves in the fall after blooming and if so do they turn color first?
Sara M on Jul 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These semi-double blooms burst with color in the springtime... but what makes this tree so unique is that its flowers appear again in the fall (when other trees are losing their leaves) and during warm winters (when trees are usually dormant).
I live in zone 4 when is the best time to plant the autumn cherry tree?
cecilia r on Apr 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can plant pretty much any time, if your ground is not frozen. If you plant in summer, you will need to pay attention to watering, so your tree stays evenly moist to withstand summer heat. We supply the best form for transplanting depending on the time of year, and we only ship when it is feasible to plant in any given area.
I live in Zone 8 or College Station, Texas. I am very interested in planting this tree next February and I want to make sure that the tree has a great soil base to survive. What is the best type of soil that this tree will thrive in?
Juan R on Aug 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This tree is pretty tolerant of most soils, though it must have good drainage. It will be fine in ordinary, decent garden soil, but if you have heavy clay or real light, sandy soil, you will want to add a generous amount of compost to help with drainage and moisture retention.
does this tree have a beautiful scent?
Elaine H on Mar 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It has a light, sweet scent.
how will the root system of this tree affect my house or any piping?
Antonio S on Jun 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The root system on the Autumn Cherry is not aggressive so as long as you plant it about 15ft from the house you should not have any issues.
Does this tree produce any fruit?
A shopper on Aug 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The short answer is no. This tree is an ornamental and produces beautiful white flowers at the onset of fall and spring. Year over year as the tree becomes more established it will produce more and more blooms. After it completes the blooming process the blooms will slowly be blown away in the wind and the tree will either begin to drop it's leaves for fall or bud new ones for spring. It is a very beautiful tree and you can't go wrong having it in your yard. Throughout spring and summer it is lush with green leaves.
Does this tree remain green year round?
Sandra C on Mar 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, it is deciduous and loses it's leaves. We are in the process of getting our first spring flowering. We received a small bloom out in Nov. but, that was our first year. We are in Tulsa area.
I lived in MA which is zone 6 and it is summer now here, I am interested to buy this tree, when is the best time to plant the autumn cherry tree in my zone ?
Nida Q on Jun 12, 2015

I purchased this tree for a friend that lives in Minnesota and she has sent me pictures of it in spring and autumn while it is in bloom. She planted it in the spring time of 2014 and it has flourished. That being said, MInnesota has a much harsher climate than Massachusetts, which is where I live as well. I am more than certain you could plant this tree in either season and it will endure.
Does this tree attract bees?
Matt M on May 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: haven't noticed any bees. My trees are still small. deer love them. I have had to replace three of mine. If you have deer around, get some repellent.
I just bought a autumn cherry tree and a eastern red bud tree. How often do I water them?
Barb D on May 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They are watered everyday in the nurseries, and now that you are going to plant it,you must wean the water down to every second day for the next week them the following week twice and then once a week.
This is so it wont go into shock.
How does the Autumn Cherry Tree do in a very cold winter? Can it handle a snow load? I live in a mountainous area in Northeast TN.
Debbie W on Aug 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I live in Western Pa and my property all clay and rock. I purchased several trees from this company and they are doing great. The Autumn Cherrys so far have done well with winter and are growing faster than I expected. I however did use heavy 8 ft stakes and use plant Velcro to keep them sturdy throughout winter.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
Does this tree do well in full sun or does it need some shade as well?
Kay!! on Jul 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have 2 planted in last Fall and have grown well with at least 6hrs full sun and watered every week here in East TN.
If I'll buy two of this tree, what is the required spacing on both sides when planting this tree ?
Nida Q on Jun 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You would want to plant them 20 feet apart
would it do well in the middle of the lawn which I water once or twice a week?
Birute P on Mar 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm would imagine so. I sent the tree to a brother in Ohio. He lives near Columbus. It is prone to freezing when little and needs to be covered during really freezing nights. He lost the top half last winter but somehow it survived.
Is this a cherry fruit bearing tree?
Anne L on May 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No it is an ornamental tree. It does not produce cherries.
The place I want to plant this tree is clay type soil and is in a grass area that gets watered by a sprinkler once a week and when really hot and dry, twice a week. Will the soil or water be a problem?
Micki P on Mar 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I live in an area that also has a very hot climate. The soil that the tree is currently is loam clay soil. My only recommendation is to add some sort of peat moss or other soil to break up the clay soil. It seems to do best in good draining soil. I think twice a week is good if indeed it gets that hot. My tree did struggle through the Texas heat but it made it through with a similar watering strategy. Hope that helps some!

I live in north Louisiana. My yard has full sun all day. Will they tolerate full sun well?
Fun2drv on Sep 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Although I am not in Louisiana, I live in Maryland and it has been humid and in the 80-90's all summer. Both my 4year old and my two year old tree are doing well.
Clinton A on Jul 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I live in Tennessee and have clay and rock soil. I bought 3 of the autumn cherry trees and they are doing fine. They bloomed this spring and should bloom this fall. When we planted them, we dug a 3ft hole around them and mixed the clay with compost and composted manure and added some osmocote ( slow release fertilizer granules)and watered them really well. We also mulched along the top. They are growing and doing well.
how fast does this tree grow?
maria m on Jun 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I planted my new tree, which was about five feet tall, in October. I staked it because I didn't want to take the chance of heavy winds breaking it. I was surprised that I got a few blossoms a couple of months ago. The tree is about 8 feet tall and looks healthy. I picked this tree because it blooms twice a year as my previous tree bloomed once a year. Good luck in what ever you choose:)
How do you ship the trees?
Lynda S on May 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The shipping is fine. The tree comes potted, stapled into in a carton. I don't remember if it was shipped UPS or USPS, but I received a 7-ft tree in good shape (SC to NY).

I will add, though, that my 7-foot tree had a bare section (no branches, no leaves) about 1 1/2 feet long just above the midway point of the trunk; and its upper branches also were bare along their lower portions.

This is my second year with the tree, and those bare sections have never filled in. I also had only a handful of blossoms this spring, but that may be due to the tree's location or other factors beyond the control of the nursery.
should you fertilize the tree when first planted? 2 1/2 - 3 inch trunk.
Ric H on Oct 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Flowering cherry trees do not require fertilizer for the first two years providing you keep weeds in check and the soil is healthy. Heavy mulch around the base of the tree protects and nurtures the soil, while keeping the roots moist and cool. When it does come time, fertilize the tree with nitrogen. Apply 1/10 pound of actual nitrogen per year for each year of the tree’s age, with a maximum of 1 pound per year. Apply it once in the spring, or spread the nitrogen amount into 2-4 equal applications over the spring and summer.

Linda D on Jan 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is an ornamental tree, which does not bear fruit.
I just bought 3 autumn cherry trees and have just found out that the black walnut trees in the vicinity could be toxic to them. Anything I can do about that to protect the cherry trees?
Nan86 on Jul 19, 2015
Everything I researched sounded like a 50 ft. radius was the closest you could plant, and that that might be too close. Planting farther away sounded like it might survive but there is no guarantee.
Is the autumn cherry deer resistant?
Melody D on Jun 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: These trees area seldom severely damaged.
