Most Popular Flowering Cherry Tree

- Stunning white blossoms
- Adaptable to various soil types
- Drought resistant

The Yoshino Flowering Cherry Tree is widely used as an ornamental tree; valued for its abundance of soft, white flowers in spring. Its Oriental branching pattern displays a pure white cloud of delicate flowers that make your landscape look like springtime on parade...

Chose this tree to -
- Border driveways
- Accent small areas in your lawn
- Highlight outdoor living areas

These trees line the streets of Washington, DC, and along with its cousin, the Kwanzan Cherry, are the stars of the city's Cherry Blossom Festival. Held each spring, this festival displays thousands of blooming cherry trees along the city's walkways.

When you plant this tree, you get the same effect at your home! Plant in a row to give you a line of breathtakingly stunning white flowers.

This tree is regarded by many horticulture specialists as the best flowering tree you can find.

Did you know? - The Yoshino is a native of Japan, - Was introduced to America in 1902. - There is a Japanese legend that each spring a fairy maiden hovers low in the warm sky, wakening the sleeping Cherry Trees to life with her delicate breath.

Our country experienced an extremely mild winter this year. Because of this, pesky insects did not have a chance to die like they normally do. So, you may see spots or holes or other minor issues, no need to worry! These are minor symptoms caused by the natural environment that will not affect the overall health of your plant. We have made incredible strides to stop issues before they occur in our nursery. But sometimes Mother Nature plays a big part with these issues.

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.

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.

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!

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!
January 1, 2013
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.

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

We have had much luck in the past with Yoshino Cherry trees. We utilize the leaves of this tree to make pickles using a family recipe. Love them!!!

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.

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.

when is the best time of year to plant the yoshino?
jean f on Mar 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I much prefer fall planting for trees when they channel their energy into creating a good root system - gives them a good transition period. Spring planting runs the risk of an unusually hot summer. Sure you can water it more. But it is trying to make its home in the soil at the same time its energies are being put toward flowering and leafing out, fighting stresses of several kinds. Planted in fall, it will establish a good footing and be ready to take on whatever comes the next growing season.
how long does the tree stay in bloom?
A shopper on Jul 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Mine were in bloom this spring for 2-3 weeks.

I live in a desert area, Southwest Texas will this tree adapt to my area?
Patsy on Jul 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We live in the Permian Basin area and have had a Yoshino Cherry tree for, I believe, 3 years now. This year it had really filled out. We had had to water it well, but not over water it. With a good regular watering schedule (especially in the summer months) I would say it should do fine and grow into a beautiful tree you will love. Hope that helps. I love ours and the blooms are really beautiful in early spring.

susan M on May 19, 2018

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.
