Kwanzan Cherry, Prunus serrulata 'Kwanzan', Kanzan
|Plum, Apricot, Nectarine, Peach, Cherry, and Almond trees are all part of this tasty group. Not only can you eat the fruits of the several deciduous varieties, but most of the trees in this group offer a spectacular show of spring hues. With their attractive foliage and bark, some look good year-round. Deciduous trees and shrubs named "Flowering" are ornamental only. Use the non-fruiting evergreen types as hedges, screens or shade and street trees. Most will not tolerate waterlogged soil, heat, or dryness. Prone to several pests and diseases, so keep them healthy and vigorous. Spray to control pests and diseases when needed. Prune after flowering to shape and remove diseased and dead branches. Transplant in spring.
This cherry tree is the most popular of the double-flowered selections. When relatively young, the shape is an inverted cone composed of stiffly upright branches which eventually spread. New leaves have a bronze cast, become green, then turn yellow-bronze in the fall.
