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.

Very pleasant, The tree is looking good and is doing well so far.
We received and planted the Kwanzan cherry on May 24, so it's only been in our yard for a short time. So far it seems to be holding its own and I'm hopeful it will make it.
The tree was nicely packed, top 10 inches was carefully bent over, causing no damage. Looked quite healthy after planting & mulching; and seems to adjust to it's new home after two or three days of wilting leaves. Today is a scorcher (92 degrees & very humid). We did get some rain last night, and I expect it will do fine in the days ahead.
I am familiar with fast growing trees in the Rock Hill area because I used to live in Charlotte and we've gotten your products before and were quite happy with them. So when I saw your ad shipping out trees to various areas living here in the mountains definitely provided an opportunity for me to again get your high quality products. The trees about 5 feet tall it was shipped in great condition and we have a currently planted in our yard. I'm looking forward to seeing it bloom next year.
It took two weeks before they shipped my tree, but when I finally received it I was pleased. It was planted same day, had gorgeous leaves and was in good shape considering the time and distance it had to travel. I'm pleased to say tree has been in ground for 2 weeks now and doing well. I recommend fast growing trees.
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.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase.
