The Cherry Blossom Festival FavoriteAn explosion of color to welcome spring!
Okame Cherry Blossoms are one of the first to bloom each spring. Just when you've had enough of the dreary winter, these trees produce their large, pink blooms to tell you that spring is just around the corner!
Plant one as a specimen, or plant several together for an amazing show of early spring flowers, as well as colorful orange-bronze foliage in the fall.
When spring hits, your Okame Cherry automatically becomes the center of attention in your landscape.
These trees are celebrated for their striking color. In the early 1900's, the Japanese sent thousands of Cherry trees to our capitol as a gesture of friendship. This gesture is celebrated today during the National Cherry Blossom Festival, when the streets of Washington, D.C. are filled with flowers for weeks.
That's why the Okame is our most popular gift tree. This colorful tree is a beautiful gesture of friendship.
Now you can have an amazing explosion of pink blooms in your own landscape! Just look at these pictures... no matter where you plant your Okame Cherry Blossom, it demands attention!
This tree is a medium-fast grower, and gets to a mature height of 20-30 feet.
It thrives in full or partial sun, and can tolerate a variety of soil conditions and climates. Once established it is low-maintenance, and its upright, vase shape makes it a great choice for small yards.
With Brighter Blooms Nursery, you'll get oversized trees with advanced root systems, to get the most blooms possible. The more developed the root system is of your tree, the faster it will adapt to your environment. This means your tree will explode with growth and produce tons of eye-popping blooms!
This is a spring favorite and sells out almost every year. We just can't grow enough! Order yours now before they're all gone.
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.
