How to Use Autumn Blooming Cherry Tree In The Landscape

This tree blooms early in the spring, heralding the arrival of the season in no uncertain terms. It grows quickly, so you needn't wait long after it goes in the ground before you're ready to capture "oohs" and "aahs" from its immediate fans when it's in full bloom!

A line of these trees along your drive will welcome you home each time! These are also stately street trees and create so much curb appeal with so little work from yourself! Hardy and tolerant of urban conditions, Autumn Blooming Cherry has it all!

During the summer, enjoy the shade from the large, oval green leaves that seem to flit and flutter with every puff of wind. When fall rolls around, those same leaves turn a brilliant array of yellow to bronze hues, kissed by the sun in places where they've been burnt a deep and resplendent red.

Plant one or more near your patio and seating areas to truly reap the benefits of their bountiful showy bloom and cooling shade.

Autumn Blooming Cherry Tree produces small black cherries that are a boon to birds looking for a pre-winter feast!

The small, black fruit that develops will attract songbirds to your yard in the fall and winter. Adding wildlife plants layers deeply meaningful bird sound and motion into your landscape design.

Fall means wonderful autumn hues of bronze, yellow and gold, or even a deep-red tinged to contribute to the colors of the season! After it drops its leaves, you may be delighted to see an additional round of blooms as other plants are beginning to go dormant for the winter.

And in winter, you'll get a chance to appreciate the magnificent branch structure. Every little bit helps in winter, and this delightful tree will catch your eye (and your breath!) even when it's cold outside.

Create groupings with other small ornamental trees like the Emperor One Japanese Maple or flowering Crabapple trees, and weeping Cherry trees for naturalized and colorful settings!

No matter where you plant it, you will be proud to share this tree with friends and family as one of the varieties enjoyed at the National Cherry Blossom Tree Festival in Washington, DC each year.

#ProPlantTips For Care

Winter hardy to USDA hardiness zones 4-8, these varieties of Autumn Flowering Cherries are highly adaptable. Add a 3-4 inch layer of mulch over the root system for insulation and moisture retention.

Loving the full sun, and blooming the absolute best when planted in as much sunlight as you can provide, Autumn Blooming Cherry can also tolerate some partial shade.

Water young trees well to ensure they become well-established in their first year. Doing best in any kind of soil, these spring and autumn flowering Cherry trees do require well-draining conditions and cannot sit in soggy soils. Be sure to include the Nature Hills Root Booster to give your root system the healthy jump-start it needs to get growing beautifully!

All trees and plants appreciate a layer of mulch over their root zone. It not only cools the roots in summer and insulates them from the heat in summer, but a generous layer of mulch also holds in more moisture; so that means less watering for you!

If needed, it is best to prune right after that early spring flush of flowers. However, you may miss out on a bit of the fall bloom.
