Description

With absolutely mesmerizing deep pink blooms, the Okame Cherry tree steals the show in early spring with a display that will snap you out of your winter funk in no time! These pink flowers are profuse covering almost every inch of every branch! As the blossoms fall, pretty green leaves emerge offering shade from ever increasing temperatures. Fall brings more color with leaves of yellow, orange, and red. The bark is the star of the show in winter; it is uniquely red-bronze differing from the silvery grey of most flowering cherry trees. It has the lined lenticels that break up the smooth bark, characteristic of cherry trees.

The Okame Cherry tree is the perfect focal point for your landscape. Offering beauty, grace, flower abundance, and shade, the Okame Cherry is a spectacular addition to any home. This small low maintenance tree adds immeasurable value to your home.

Key Features:

  • The Okame Cherry tree is the most heat, humidity, and drought tolerant flowering cherry tree. So, if you are in the deep south or any warm area of the country this is our top pick for you.
  • This flowering tree blooms heavily in the spring. You will enjoy a tree loaded with gorgeous pink blooms.
  • Adaptable and tough, while the Okame Cherry tree is so showy it looks difficult to care for, it is actually quite easy to grow!

Pro Tip: The Okame Cherry tree is a spectacular tree for lining a long driveway or planting in groups at the corner of your yard. It tends to be a bit smaller than the Yoshino and Kwanzan generally staying closer to 20 feet tall and wide.

How To Care

The Okame Flowering Cherry tree thrives in full to part sun and loose, well drained, moist soil. However, this tree can tolerate drought, heat, and humidity and is adaptable to a variety of soils.

Water deeply with a hose when newly planted at least twice weekly. Applying 2 inches of mulch can help protect the roots and retain moisture. Fertilize with our slow release fertilizer when planting and once yearly in spring.

The Pink Weeping Cherry tree grows in zones 6 to 9.

Landscape Ideas

Plant your Okame Cherry tree in your front yard, and make an island out of the bed.  Add a boulder in the front off to the side of your cherry tree, and use some soft touch holly shrubs on the sides. 

Or just plant your Cherry Tree anywhere around your home to add value and beauty. Place your Cherry tree in an area where you can see it from your window so you can enjoy its blooms from inside your home.

The Okame Flowering Cherry tree also goes great with blue junipers, and yellow-gold shrubs, like the Gold Mop Cypress or Kaleidoscope Abelia. The blues and yellows really make this tree pop with color.

Since the Okame Cherry tree stays a bit more compact that other flowering trees it works great in groups, lining a long driveway or a group of 3 in the corner of your yard.

Great place to buy a tree!

I went into buying a tree for the first time worried cause it is a large investment. But. This company is good for it. Good prices and deals. Great customer care that messages you quickly and willing to help! And your tree is sent fast. Got mine within a day and a half and i am in love with it. I can not wait to watch it grow bigger and fuller. If i bought another tree or garden plant. Definitely would get it here. They get a 5/5 Star review from me.
