Flowering Cherry trees are one of our most popular ornamental tree options. Most people are initially drawn to flowering cherries for their beautiful blossoms but they also have lots of other great attributes to offer. From differing leaf, flower and bark colour; double, single or semi double flowers and different flowering seasons; there are plenty of reasons to plant a flowering cherry tree!
Flowering Cherry / Cherry Blossom is part of the genus Prunus which is a large group of around 430 species. There are many different types of Cherry Blossom trees, some of which are native to Japan, China, the U.K and the U.S.
Ensure you keep young trees well watered and plant with an organic fertiliser. We also recommend protecting your new tree with a rabbit guard and cane to ensure it establishes into a strong and healthy tree.
In Japanese culture, Flowering Cherry trees symbolise clouds, mainly due to their habit of flowering en masse. The Japanese also have a centuries old tradition of picnicking under flowering cherry trees. It was originally reserved for the elite persons within society but was later opened up to everybody.
