Flowering cherry trees

Signature first blooms of spring.


From the Okame Cherry Tree to the Kwanzan Cherry Tree, our Flowering Cherry Trees offer months of visual interest and effortless growth. Rich pink and white hues, along with flouncy and full blooms, set each tree apart from other springtime favorites. Especially since these are some of the first trees to bloom when temperatures start to warm!

Types of Flowering Cherry Trees

There are many different kinds of flowering cherry trees, distinguished by their color, flower shape and size, growth habit and more.

Color: Some flowering cherry trees, like the Kwanzan and Okame Cherry Trees, bloom with bright pink color. Others, like the Yoshino, are white - or, like the Autumn Cherry Tree, have shades of both pink and white for a multicolor effect.

Growth habit: Most flowering cherry trees grow upright, with a neat oval form. However, some have a graceful, weeping habit - like the Pink and White Weeping Cherry Trees.

Size: Typically, mature flowering cherry trees can grow up to 30-40 feet tall and wide. However, if you need a cherry tree for a smaller space, dwarf cherry trees fit the bill - they'll mature at around 15 feet tall. Keep in mind, you can keep even full-size cherry trees at a dwarf size with regular pruning!

Blooming time: Flowering cherry trees are known for their early spring blooms that last several weeks. But some bloom later in the season - and still others, like the Autumn Cherry Tree, have much longer blooming times and can even burst with color in fall and into winter.


How to Plant Flowering Cherry Trees

Specific planting directions will depend on the variety you choose, but most Flowering Cherry Trees like full to partial sun (4 to 8 hours of sun per day) and well-drained soil. And of course, it's important to ensure that you’re in the correct growing zone for planting Flowering and Weeping Cherry Trees.

But the actual planting process is easy. Dig a hole large enough to accommodate your Flowering Cherry's root ball (with some room to grow), place your tree and backfill the soil. Finally, water the surrounding soil to settle your Flowering Cherry Tree’s roots and mulch to conserve moisture.

If you're planting a full-size cherry tree, be sure to give your tree plenty of room to grow, avoiding planting too close to structures or underneath power lines. However, if you have a dwarf cherry tree or plan to prune your cherry tree to keep it small, you can plant it in smaller, more compact areas.

When to Prune Flowering Cherry Trees and More

Start by establishing a solid watering schedule. Generally, we recommend watering your Flowering Cherry Trees about once or twice weekly. If you’re not sure when to water, simply check your surrounding soil about 2 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it’s time to water your tree.

Fertilizing and pruning are also simple. Fertilize in early spring, before blooming, with a general-purpose or well-balanced blend for best results. Also, follow label instructions for fertilizing. And for pruning, simply remove dead, damaged or diseased areas and cut back competing branches after blooms have faded on your Flowering Cherry Trees.
