- They are widely distributed, especially in the temperate zone of the Northern Hemisphere including Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Mainland China, Nepal, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Myanmar, Thailand, and West Siberia.
- Along with the chrysanthemum, the cherry blossom is considered the national flower of Japan.
- All varieties of cherry blossom trees produce small, unpalatable fruit or edible cherries.
- Edible cherries generally come from cultivars of the related species Prunus avium and Prunus cerasus.
- The Cherry Blossom Tree is a medium-sized flowering spectacle, reaching between 40 and 50 feet tall.
- Minimal pruning is needed for this cultivar, which naturally produces a rounded shape.
- The Cherry Blossom Tree exhibits a moderate growth rate, ranging between 2 and 4 feet a year.
- Plant in well-drained, moist soil that is not overly wet.
- Although adaptable to many soil types, Cherry Blossom Trees prefer acidic soils.
- A common recommendation is to fertilize cherry trees once a year.
- Applying a low-nitrogen fertilizer such as 5-10-10 in early spring, about a month before bloom.
- Full sun, partial shade, or mostly shady locations will all work.
- During the first season, Cherry Blossom Trees require moderate watering care, preferably once a week for 30 minutes or to a depth of 18 inches.
- Once established, simply water once every two to three weeks.
