The gorgeous, fragrant cherry blossoms from our Autumn Blooming Cherry Tree (Prunus subhirtella 'Autumnalis') are a pure delight! That's why you'll love the re-blooming appeal of this fabulous variety for double the delight!
This tree is the gift that keeps on giving, literally. It offers four seasons of visual interest for your lawnscape, ensuring that with each passing season, there's something new to love!
This tree flowers on and off during mild fall and winter months (in warmer winter growing zones), although the true showstopper is its spring flowering! The masses of dark-pink buds transform into clouds of semi-double pink flowers that then cascade into a pure white flower color that is just itching for an encore.
Those blooms won't just be attracting neighborhood attention, local bees and butterflies will make your tree their favorite hangout spot! Providing ample nectar and pollen, it is a beneficial pollinator's dream buffet!
Plant the Autumn Blooming Cherry out front to create a neighborhood floral show that will get folks talking.
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.
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 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 bloom and cooling shade.
Just when you think the Autumn Blooming Cherry Tree is done for the year, it becomes laden on every branch and limb with small black cherries. Autumn Cherry Trees 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.
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 Festival in Washington, DC each year.
Autumn Blooming Cherry is a hardy deciduous tree with so many amazing features. Average growth rate, these can reach 20 - 30 feet in height and 20 - 30 feet wide, just right to provide wonderful shade and impact without sacrificing much space!
Winter hardy to growing zones 4-8, these varieties of Autumn Flowering cherries are highly adaptable.
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 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 summers, 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 spring flush of flowers. However, you may miss out on a bit of the fall bloom.
Gorgeous, repeat blooms, fragrance and wonderful, cooling shade - you won't go wrong with the Autumn Blooming Cherry tree from Nature Hills Nursery! We sell out of this magical flowering tree every single year, so please - place your order today! You don't want to miss this tree!
