Kwanzan Cherry could be the showiest of all the cherries! When other Cherry trees start to fade, the Kwanzan blossoms take over. Double blossoms make this tree the star of spring! Each blossom has double the petals, making it look like a flower within a flower. Deep-pink blossoms grow in clusters, making this tree look almost like it is covered with thousands of small roses. It will certainly turn heads each spring when it explodes with color! As the flowers begin to fade, bronze leaves take their place and then turn glossy green for the summer. When fall arrives, the leaves turn a brilliant yellow-orange, and as the chill of winter arrives, the Kwanzan Cherry’s thin, glossy bark will steal the show. America's love affair with cherry blossom trees began in the early 1900's, when thousands were sent to our nation's capital by the Japanese. We remember this gift each year during the National Cherry Blossom Festival, where these trees' natural beauty can enjoyed for weeks. Now you can enjoy this year-round beauty in your yard! Your Kwanzan Cherry will do best if it’s planted in full sun. It can be planted in many soil types and climates, and will grow quickly to a mature height of 30 feet high and wide. Plant one as a specimen plant, or put several together to line your drive or patio. The Kwanzan Cherry is a great addition to any yard! Our country experienced an extremely mild winter this year. Because of this, pesky insects did not have a chance to die like they normally do. So, you may see spots or holes or other minor issues, no need to worry! These are minor symptoms caused by the natural environment that will not affect the overall health of your plant. We have made incredible strides to stop issues before they occur in our nursery. But sometimes Mother Nature plays a big part with these issues.
