The Yoshino Cherry, one of the most popular flowering cherries in the world, is a wide spreading deciduous weeping tree. When the flowers open in early spring it is transformed into fragrant cascades of snow-white blossom before turning into lovely autumn foliage in shades of orange and yellow.

Due to the bold yet beautiful nature of this flat-crowned tree, it could work as a focal point of any garden or even as an avenue tree.

Caring and Maintenance

Water young trees regularly until roots are well established. Trim annually from mid to late summer. Apply some fertilizer in spring in order to promote healthy growth and a good crop. Optionally, mulch in spring. Check tree ties regularly and loosen any if necessary to avoid rubbing of the stems.


  • Planting Distance: 5m

Suited to almost all well-drained and moderately fertile soils with pH between 6.5 and 7.5 in a sheltered, full sun location.
Before planting your tree, clean up all wandering weeds and keep a clean ring around the tree base. Water well during the first year until well established.

Autumn is the best season for planting fruiting trees, as the soil moisture and heat allow easier and faster root establishment and regeneration of damaged root systems.
