Flowering Cherry Trees

Cherry trees are hard to beat because of their incredible floral show in late winter and early spring. There are many different varieties of flowering cherries, each producing blooms at slightly different time periods. For several weeks in spring, these trees are flowering machines that demand attention in the garden. White flowers with a dappled blush pink throat cover the branches on Yoshino while pink carnation formed flowers can be found on Kwanzan. Weeping cherries can flower in either pink or white, depending on which cultivar is chosen. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, keep in mind that many more cultivars will be in stock when they’re available!
