Kwanzan Cherry Trees Bloom in Spring
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.
