Product Description

Hardiest Cherry Blooms Welcome Spring

Why Kwanzan Cherry Trees?

The hardiest of the Cherry Tree family, the Kwanzan heightens springtime each year, welcoming the new season with unmatched color. In fact, it's also the showiest of all Cherry Trees. And its flowers aren't just pink...but double pink, meaning that you get twice the petals and twice the blooms of other trees.

Your new Kwanzan Cherry Tree blooms in huge clusters of 3 to 5 flowers. These clusters are the thickest of all pink trees and resemble carnations in hue and volume.

Kwanzans begin to bloom in April, with full florals that can last weeks at a time. In the fall, golden autumn leaves take hold, captivating neighbors and guests alike. Basically, the Kwanzan offers four seasons of visual interest, giving you the best yard on the block.

And it's one of the easiest flowering trees to grow! The Kwanzan Cherry thrives in almost any soil and climate, so you don't have to spend hours in your garden spraying, fertilizing and pruning. When it comes to the Kwanzan, there's no guesswork in growing.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Kwanzans grow best in moist, well-drained soil and full to partial sun (at least 4 hours of sunlight daily).

Dig your hole just as deep and twice as wide as the root ball. Leave a small mound of dirt in the center of the hole to set the root ball on and carefully spread the roots in the hole. Backfill your hole, place your tree, and water the surrounding area. Do not cover the crown with the soil...only cover the roots. Finally, spread mulch over the surrounding soil to conserve moisture.

2. Watering: Water your tree when the top 2 inches of soil dries (a slow trickle with a garden hose for about 10 minutes is recommended).

3. Fertilizing: Flowering Cherries will not require fertilizer for the first two years. After that, 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 into 2 to 4 equal applications over the spring and summer.

4. Pruning: Removal of the current year’s old, faded flowers and fruit clusters will promote flower buds for the following season. Prune the tree during in winter to remove dead or damaged branches.

Kwanzan Cherry Tree

This is our second tree. We bought one in early spring but it died ( my suspicion is it took longer than normal in transport so when it got to us it was very stressed). Fast Growing Trees was great with the issue. Customer service was responsive and gave us store credit for the full amount so we repurchased it and this one looks healthier and has grown new sprouts already.

Looks like it will grow in Austin Texas. Was worried since November 2020 and leaves started sprouting just this June 2021. Beautiful healthy tree. So thrilled. Can’t wait to see the Spring blossoms.

Kwanzan Cherry Trees

I ordered 2 Kwanzan Cherry Trees. I’ve gotten them planted and have been watering them. They seem to be doing good so far. One has lots of leaves sprouting and looks to be thriving. The other one only has a few leaves, but I think it will do just fine. I’m so excited to watch them grow and bloom!

Started flowering

I bought this back in Aug 2018. Im satified. Its has a small growth. Its okay since im near Houston and the weather here is not the best. The other thing I didnt do is put fertilizer as recommended. I love the two flowers. I will start putting the fertulizer as recommended. Hopefully next year it will have more flowers.
