Akebono Cherry Trees for Sale Online
Akebono Flowering Cherry Trees (Prunus x yedoensis 'Akebono') are deciduous trees that create a stunning display of fragrant flowers in spring. The fluffy pink flowers transition to white toward the end of bloom season and the glossy green leaves give this exquisite shade tree summer interest. The foliage then transitions to golden yellow in the fall before shedding in the winter, revealing bark stippled with attractive lenticels.
Its large delicate flowers bloom in the early spring before the green foliage emerges, covering the entire surface area with the prolific ruffled flowers. As a young tree, it tends to grow in an upright form before gradually transforming into the asymmetrical rounded shape that makes Akebono an ideal shade tree for a spring picnic.
Akebono Cherry Trees are low maintenance and drought tolerant once established. Full sun is ideal and like most plants, well-drained soil is highly important to survival, especially as a young sapling. Plant this cherry tree along a sidewalk or path and enjoy years and years of blossoms, attracting pollinators, hummingbirds, and butterflies.
