Kwanzan Cherry Tree (Prunus kanzan)
Prunus kanzan is better known as the Kwanzan Cherry Tree. This glorious flowering deciduous tree is a small, highly ornamental tree that most gardeners purchase from TN Nursery for the breathtaking, colorful flowers in the spring.
The Kwanzan cherry tree is a Japanese native species. However, American gardeners adopted its use over a century ago, making it a familiar favorite nationwide.
The Kwanzan cherry tree flourishes in the warmer USDA plant hardiness zones. It especially enjoys popularity in the lower midwestern states, the middle-south, and the deep south through Georgia and north Florida.
Where to Use the Kwanzan Cherry Tree in Your Garden or Landscape
The Kwanzan cherry tree is a small size for a tree, reaching a total height of forty feet or less. It needs full sunshine or partial shade and about one inch of water per week. Besides some initial care when you plant it, the Kwanzan cherry tree is easy to grow and requires less maintenance after it strengthens.
It prefers hot, humid summers. Besides loving the heat, it is drought-tolerant, pest-resistant, and disease-resistant.
TN Nursery customers plant this tree as a stand-alone specimen; to accentuate a driveway or sidewalk; as a patio tree; in a pollinator garden, or anywhere to enjoy its springtime pink blossoms.
The Kwanzan Cherry Tree Abounds in Beauty
Despite the name "cherry," most gardeners cultivate the Kwanzan cherry tree for its inherent beauty, not its fruit. Indeed, most leave that to the birds.
A single reddish or brown trunk splits into several erect, sturdy branches.
Flowers have twenty double-blooming petals, measuring about an inch to three each. The color is vibrant--rose or pink. You will have many blossoms for approximately two to three weeks in mid-spring.
The smell of the blossoms is soft, floral, and sweet.
The leaves emerge after the blossoms drop. Their leaves are petite, under five inches, and alternate along the stems. They generally turn to amber or orange in the autumn.

Received a healthy sapling, in fact two (I had to order a second after my puppy decided to eat the first) which I can't wait to plant in it's permanent location. The first had a slightly better root system, but both we're above average. It will take sometime to see the end result of this beautiful specimen.
arrived in good condition
I just received by bareroot tree today. I was very impressed. The tree is about 2-3 ft tall and perfectly straight. Has new buds all over it. Although it is end of October, I doubt I will see leaves until Spring. Spring arrives early in Florida. Will post later as it progresses. So far I am very happy.
Thank you for my cherry tree. This tree will surely look good in my lawn!
