The Cherry blossom trees sold today are the same time-proven varieties that were gifted to the United States by the emperor of Japan. Cherry Blossom season begins in early spring, and the colors are a welcome sight after winter's long sleep. Cherry Blossom Trees are easy to grow and look fabulous planted in front yards across the country.
One of the earliest and most beautiful signs that Spring is truly here is the arrival of the flowers on ornamental cherry blossom trees, known as Sakura in Japan. Clouds of beautiful blossoms from the deepest pink to the most delicate white have captivated gardeners and artists alike for centuries.
When designing your garden – cherry trees are a great asset to use to accentuate a particular area – their unique shape, luscious pink blooms and bright spring display, not to mention their rich autumn leaf color, make them a good all-around investment as a statement tree.
How To Care For a Cherry Blossom Tree
Cherry Blossom Trees are fairly low maintenance and have been categorized as a decently easy-to-grow specimen tree. It is best to plant your Cherry Tree in the spring. Ideal conditions for your spring flowering tree include a well-draining soil medium and a location that receives full sun or light shade. Cherry Trees are not very particular when it comes to their soil medium as long as they receive an adequate amount of moisture.

Other Types of Cherry Trees
Looking for a cherry tree with edible fruit? While technically all cherry trees produce fruit, trees bred for their blossoms don't taste anywhere near as delicious as the cherry trees developed for their fruit. In fact, the best way to tell the difference between fruiting cherry trees and flowering cherry trees is how elaborate their flowers are.
Fruiting cherry trees do not spend anywhere near as much energy on their blooms and tend to have very small, insignificant floral displays. Adversely, blossoming cherry trees usually have teeny tiny, bitter fruits best left to the birds.
