How To Care for your new Kwanzan Cherry Tree

The spectacular Kwanzan Flowering Cherry tree thrives in full sunlight and loose, well drained soil with plenty of moisture. However, this tree can tolerate drought and is adaptable to a variety of soils.

It grows in zones 5-9 which makes this tree widely used around the country.  Its really a no maintenance tree.  Just Plant, Water, and Enjoy!

 

Planting Directions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.  

 

Planting a shrub digging the hole

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 1-2 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.

Love my 24-year-old Kwanzan!
This has been a beautiful tree gracing my front lawn. Expect to spend quite a bit over the years in pruning but if you do, you will be blessed with a beautiful, strong and "clean" tree. By clean I mean it only drops the flower blooms and then leaves in the fall. In over 20 years only one small branch fell.

Pretty
We just love flowering trees. We have over 20 different cherry trees in our yard. This one is quite large. The other ones I bought from another company were bare root. Not this one. It came delivered in a pot in a very large box.

We are happy with our experience.

First time buying online. Skeptical but it was a great deal and am now debating buying one for my brothers house
The tree arrived packed really well. I was skeptical at first cause it had no leaves on it at all. We planted it 2 days later and set it up with 2 guide poles and it's doing great. It has little leaves all over and I believe it's going to have a great shape to it.

Kwanzan Cherry Trees
I recently purchased 3 of these trees. Shipping was pretty quick and the trees were packaged very well in sturdy long skinny boxes. All 3 trees trees arrived with no leafs, which I thought was unusual since it was mid May. I received the trees a few weeks ago now and the trees are just now starting to pop up some buds/leaves. Hoping they get much better with time because they look kind of sorry right now.
