Buy Fast Growing Okame Cherry Tree - Prunus x in camp ‘Okame

The Okame cherry tree brings a bounty of color to small and large gardens. This tree’s headlining feature is the intense profusion of richly-colored pink flowers that surround the branches in springtime. Appearing as early as Valentine’s Day in some areas, the fragrant flowers are not only an early-season showstopper, but a draw for bees, and later in the year, the tight red fruits will attract many birds. Following the flowers, serrated elliptic leaves in dark green fill up the tree and provide moderate shade to the surrounding area. In the autumn, the leaves change to a variety of warm orange, red, and bronze hues.

A hybrid of Prunus incisa and Prunus campanulata, the Okame cherry is developed to be a more compact tree, reaching a mature height and width of 15 to 20 feet. This makes it suitable for growth near utility lines, as a showpiece in smaller gardens, or even on a patio in a large pot. Before maturity, expect this tree to grow up to 24 inches a year. The Okame cherry prefers well-drained clay, loam, or sandy soil with an acidic pH and grows best in full sun. Once established, the tree is moderately drought resistant. Through pruning during the tree’s development, the gardener can choose whether it should grow into an upright tree shape or remain a bushy shrub. It can be grown in zones 5 to 8 and tolerates somewhat warmer winters than some other varieties of blossoming cherry.

Okame cherry trees ( P. Okame) create the ornamental beauty that many homeowners desire in a smaller plant. The elegant tree delivers an amazing halo of pretty pink blossoms and reaches a height between 20 and 30 feet with a canopy spread measuring anywhere from 10 to 20 feet. It's a stunner for any landscape and looks extra lovely against a cluster of classic evergreens. Even better is the mild fragrance that emanates from the vivid flowers.


 Okame cherry trees can grow in Canada and most of the United States. The tree thrives best in USDA zones of 5-9 with good soil and plenty of sunshine. Okame cherry trees don't need much pruning at all and premiere their soft clouds of pink blossoms in early spring.


 The flowers retain their dreamy blooms for about three weeks, and when autumn comes around, the Okame's foliage also creates a striking watercolor palette in shades of coppery orange and red leaves with a dash of yellow. It's a dramatic curtain call for the tree's end of the season showing.


 Okame cherry trees are an excellent, low maintenance choice for those who want their property to come alive with rosy pink grandeur. Plant one by a patio, or have a couple gracing a doorway. These trees bring out the most beautiful nature has to offer.
