Kwanzan Cherry Trees Bloom in Spring Buy Low Priced Fast Growing

Pried for its spectacular eruption of flowers in the early to mid-spring, the kwanzan cherry is an ornamental tree with a vase-shaped habit whose spread is more extensive than its height when it’s mature. It’s a sterile cultivar that grows from cuttings or grafts. The tree has a medium rate of growth and grows between 13 and 24 inches a year. It should get at least six hours of direct sun every day for the very best blossoming and is not fussy about soil. Natural to transplant, the kwanzan cherry can thrive in soil that’s acidic or alkaline, sandy, fertile, clayey, wet or well-drained. It does well in any soil pH. It tolerates some drought, but ideally, the kwanzan cherry likes its soil to be kept moist. Add mulch to the ground where it is planted to keep the roots cool and hydrated.

The flowers, which are ruffly, double and rosy pink are 2.5 inches in diameter. When the leaves arrive, they are oval or lance-shaped, with toothed edges. At first, they’re a deep, attractive copper color and turn dark green as the season goes on. They provide beautiful fall color in shades of bronze, yellow or orange. The tree can be planted in Versailles planters and is often found along the edges of sidewalks and in public parks. The cherry esplanade in Brooklyn’s Botanical Gardens is an example of how the kwanzan cherry can be used in the landscape.

This singularly beautiful tree bears no fruit, so there is no mess to clean up, but when the petals fall they form beautiful pink carpets. The tree was named for a Japanese mountain and is native to East Asia.

The Kwanzan Cherry Tree: Celebrate The Beauty of Spring Cherry Blossoms 

 

 

 The Kwanzan Cherry Tree (Prunus serrulata 'Kwanzan') typically survives between 15 and 25 years in the United States. Originally cultivated in Asia, this lovely cherry tree thrives from Zone 5 through Zone 9. It displays upwardly extending branches forming a characteristic inverted pyramidal or "vase" shaped symmetrical configuration.

 

An In-demand Ornamental Tree

 

 Although the Kwanzan Cherry Tree cannot produce fruit, it does display breathtaking arrays of bright pink cherry blossoms during the Spring. Its double flowers hang in clusters. They measure up to 2.5 inches in length and include between 20 and 30 petals each. This tree generally attains heights between 15 and 25 feet; its canopy diameter also ranges from 15 to 25 feet. 

 

Attractive Foliage

 

 The tree's green leaves provide vivid yellow, orange, and bronze foliage during the autumn. The Kwanzan Cherry Tree makes a popular decorative addition to lawns and gardens. (It contributes to Washington D.C.'s annual Cherry Blossom Festival, in fact.) Due to its comparatively short height and its colorful canopy, developers frequently use it in a shopping center and parking lot landscaping.

 

An Excellent Bonsai Tree, Too

 

 Hobbyists sometimes train the Kwanzan Cherry Tree to grow in a bonsai forum. In this capacity, it serves as a beautiful container plant. It transplants readily but does require adequate drainage. Plant it in full sun for the best results!
