Looking to add beauty and elegance to your yard? The Yoshino Cherry does just that. It is considered one of the most beautiful, flowering ornamental trees. No doubt about it...this gorgeous tree will turn heads!

The Yoshino Cherry is one of the showiest Flowering Cherry trees. The flowers bloom before the foliage appears. An abundance of delicate white to pink flowers with a light, almond fragrance appear around mid March. Your landscape will stun all who pass.

The leaves of the Yoshino Cherry are a glossy dark green that will turn yellow in the fall. Like all flowering trees, the Yoshino is partial to full sunlight and well drained soil. Starting off as a fast grower, the Yoshino will reach between 10-15 feet in the first 3 to 4 years. As the tree matures the growth rate slows down. You can expect your Yoshino Cherry to reach between 20 to 30 feet at maturity. It’s arcing branches reach about 20 feet wide.

The Yoshino Cherry is featured alongside its cousin the Kwanzan Cherry at the Cherry Blossom Festivals in both Washington D.C. and Macon, Georgia each spring. These magnificent treasures line the streets of D.C. and attract a huge crowd from all over the world. Why not add this popular tree to your own yard?

These fast growing, medium stature trees are easy to use in any landscape. Small yards could be greatly enhanced by using the compact Yoshino Cherry. The Yoshino Cherry can either be used as a specimen or grouped together with other trees to make a spectacular addition to your landscape.

Don't forget its beauty at night. Place an uplight under each tree and be dazzled all night long.

When planting your Yoshino Cherry tree be sure you have the right location and conditions for your new tree to thrive. Spring and fall are ideal times to plant. However, if you avoid freezing temperatures and extreme heat you can plant your Flowering Cherry tree almost any time of the year.

Yoshino Flowering Cherry trees thrive in full sun and are extremely adaptable to any soil as long as it is well drained. Water deeply when planting and twice weekly for about 3 months while your new tree is establishing. Once your tree is established you will only need to water during dry periods. When the soil is dry(and especially in high temperatures) water deeply once or twice weekly as needed to keep the soil moist. Adding a layer of mulch is recommended especially with newly planted trees. This will help keep the soil moist and cool in summer and protect the roots in winter as well. Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease. Fertilize in early spring and when planting to give your tree a boost. Choose a balanced, slow release fertilizer. Pruning is not recommended for ornamental Cherry trees, but, if needed, prune in winter or early spring to remove any dead, dying, or crowded branches.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. Scale, Aphids and Mites are insects that can affect Flowering Cherry trees. You can treat these pests naturally with horticultural oil, neem oil, or insecticidal soap. For severe infections you can use pesticides like carbaryl, also known as Sevin. Tent Caterpillars and Cankerworms are sometimes an issue for Flowering Cherry Trees. These can be treated with an organic pesticide spray, Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt). Occasionally fungal issues can arise. Generally, treating after infection isn't extremely effective, so if you have problems yearly treat in early spring with fungicides to prevent infection. Neem Oil is an organic method of treating and preventing some fungal diseases and pests. It can be effective, but the entire tree must be coated in order for this method to be effective.

broken in half on arrival so ....

Very dissappointing. Could tell by pkg on front porch something was wrong as cardboard was bent and flopping about halfway. Opened to find top half on bottom next to root. PT is replacing it now so hopefully this time we get a functional tree.

Love my Cherry Tree

The overall experience was great. Ordering was simple and shipping flawless. I received my 6ft Yoshino Cherry tree in good condition about a week after placing the order. I have planted it, following all the directions and it seems to be doing well. My only concern, which Is something I wasn’t expecting, was that the trunk was sooooo skinny and flimsy, it came with an extra support stick but even then it was leaning due to lack of support. We had to place a small tree stake to help it at least until roots take. I am definitely looking forward to see it bloom hopefully next year. It doesn’t look like a cherry tree now as it’s all green and very skinny, I guess I was imagining a pink and white flowered tree LoL I know it will take time to get there. I’m giving it all it needs and crossing my fingers for a beautiful blooming tree in the future
