Why Yoshino Cherry Trees?
A cherry tree’s blooms are iconic, and the Yoshino is no exception. With full, colorful blooms and strong growth, our Yoshino Cherry Tree is a must-have for lovers of flowering trees, especially since it's one of the first to bloom each spring.
Its stunning white blossoms are famous. In fact, it's widely used as an ornamental tree, valued for its abundance of soft blooms in the spring. And its exotic branching pattern means a jaw-dropping display: a pure white cloud of delicate flowers that make your landscape look like springtime on parade. It’s the star of Washington, D.C.'s Cherry Blossom Festival for a reason. And when you plant this tree at home, you get the same effect in your yard.
Even better is the fact that the Yoshino is drought resistant and adapts well to an array of soil types. So, whether you're planting your Yoshino in borders along your driveway or as an accent, it’s virtually carefree. Forget yard of the month…you’ll have the yard of the year with this heavy-blooming, long-lasting tree.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a location with well-drained soil and plenty of sunlight (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day).
Dig a hole for that’s three times as wide and equal in depth as the root ball. Remove your tree from its original container, position into the hole ensuring that it’s standing upright, and the top of the root ball is even with the ground.
Begin backfilling the hole, tamping down lightly as you go. Once the hole has been completely filled, water to allow the soil to settle and eliminate any air pockets. Finally, apply a 3 to 5-inch layer of mulch around the tree to help enrich the soil as well as conserve moisture and control weeds.
2. Watering: We recommend watering these trees in the morning, at the base. If you’re not sure when to water, simply check the top 2 inches of soil for dryness. If the soil is dry here, it’s time to water your shrub.
3. Fertilizing: Apply a slow-release fertilizer once a year in early spring, before new growth emerges. Follow up by watering the surrounding soil to allow the fertilizer to penetrate into the roots.4. Pruning: Minimal pruning is needed for these trees. Any broken branches can be pruned back in spring before new growth begins.

Customer Reviews & Photos
I ordered 7 cherry trees, and unfortunately 2 of them died. Probably from the stress of the shipping. But it was really easy to deal with customer service and they were able to fix the issue promptly and professionally. I originally wasn't too sure how reputable this site was, since I just found it online, but once dealing with them, I found them to be extremely reputable and professional. They always answered all my emails promptly and resolved my issues promptly as well. I would highly recommend this site. As for the trees, they are smaller than I expected, but I believe they will grow into big trees eventually.
At first they sent the wrong cherry tree and then they sent the right one and was told to keep or donate the wrong one, since had room in the back yard, planted it there. Yoshine is in the front yard, it's small now, but still like this tree though. Thanks Fast Growing Tree
Bought this for a friend who lost a loved one and she absolutely loves this, way better than sending flowers. This will last a lifetime.
I bought my Yoshino Cherry from FTG a few years ago, and it is gorgeous. It grows as fast as described and the blooms that arrive in early spring, prior to most other flowering trees, are stunning. I especially love that it provides and draws the bees to feed! I live in the St. Louis area where we can have really wet season and really dry seasons; it thrives in almost any condition. We also have clay soil here, and it does well with that as well.
Good overall experience. The tree is less mature than I had imagined. But, it appears healthy.
