7ft 'Kanzan' Cherry Blossom Tree | 18L Pot | Half Standard | 4 Years Old

A classic Cherry Blossom Tree, forming a cloud of intense pink blooms

This Japanese Flowering Cherry is one of the most sought-after trees from our flowering cherry range, and for understandable reasons. This deciduous plant will develop intense, pink double flowers, complemented by foliage evolving from bronze to deep-red in Spring, and eventually maturing to light green in Summer. Therefore, your garden will be graced with a range of stunning colours throughout the year.

Bold in nature, this Japanese Flowering Cherry is unsuited to paved areas, however, due to its unique shape and colours, it will prove a striking avenue tree. Nevertheless, the stunning ornateness of this tree will bring beauty to almost any area. Having proudly achieved the Royal Horticultural Society's 'Award of Garden Merit', this tree is importantly hardy, and once established, will require very little care and attention.

Please note, our 18L range now arrive in our eco friendly polypots which use 80% less plastic.

Key is to regularly water newly-planted trees, at least bimonthly for two months. It is also important to ensure you choose a location where your tree has enough space, which you can calculate from a variety's eventual height and spread.

Bare root & containerised trees have different planting requirements. With bare root, it is important to soak your tree's roots in water for up to 2 hours before planting, while with containerised trees it is important to drench your tree's rootball. With bare root it can be useful to prune woody roots back a few inches, while with containerised trees, it is important to free any spiralized roots growing around the rootball's circumference. With bare root trees, dig a hole so as to ensure the graft point is above the soil, while with containerised trees, ensure the pot sits no lower than an inch below ground.

Bare root & containerised trees also share planting requirements. Dig a hole twice the radius of the rootball. Stake your tree no more than 2-3 inches from the stem, pointing away from the prevailing wind. Fill the hole with a mix of compost and garden soil, and add fertiliser and mycorrhizal fungi. Do not compress the soil. Give your tree a good watering. Add mulch on top whether bark and wood chippings, compost, manure, leaf-mould and stones. Make sure mulch doesn't touch the stem. Tie the stake to your tree, leaving space for growth. Place a rabbit guard around your tree.

Apply fertiliser and replace decomposed mulch come spring. Check ties to ensure there is no rubbing. Collect fallen leaves in autumn.

You can see an example, from our nursery, of the size and quality tree you will receive.

All trees arrive in a specially made, extra thick, cardboard box with a clamp to hold the pot in place at the bottom of the box. This prevents any movement during transit, keeping your plant safe.

Cherry blossom trees are easy to grow. Your tree’s growth and output will likely be fine providing you followed our planting and care instructions. Below we address some common queries:

  • Hardiness: Cherry blossom trees can be found growing in far colder regions than the UK and therefore the UK’s mild winters will not affect your tree.
  • Position: Cherry trees benefit from being planted in full sun. Planting your tree in a sheltered spot will allow the tree to put more resources into flowering.
  • Soil Types: Soil types are best ignored and remain an unwelcome confusion. Every plant will adapt to its conditions. Having said that, less than ideal conditions will reduce growth. Waterlogged soils will starve your tree of oxygen, which plays a key role in photosynthesis, cause its roots to rot and create the perfect environment for many diseases. Similarly, compressed soils can starve a tree of oxygen and water, so do not compress the soil when planting. Aeration can be improved further with mulching.
