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.

...extremely healthy tree when it arrived
Very pleased with my tree. Was well packaged and arrived in a timely manner. I have ordered from Fast Growing Trees.com in the past and will certainly order again in the future. I would recommend to anyone.
Lots to choose from on the site, picked the Yoshino Cherry Tree and ordered. It came quick! Especially during these trying times! We planted the next day and so far so good! I love my little tree!
The tree arrived in excellent condition. The packaging was excellent. We set it outside for the day planning to plant the tree. We moved it to the patio due to a cold front coming in. Our mistake we should have brought it inside. It is now planted and finally getting some new buds. It took a months to recover but it will survive. Colorado went from 70* to 28* in just a few hours so everything suffered!
Having never purchased trees through mail order before I was concerned. All 5 trees arrived perfectly packaged and in mint condition. They are all thriving in the garden and I can recommend this buying experience without reservation.
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.
