How to Use Corum Sweet Cherry Trees in the Landscape

Use them in the middle of your yard as a lovely, informal grouping with several other varieties. You'll gain a gorgeous view, plenty of privacy and a tasty harvest.
Add them behind your patio seating, or use it as a living fence around a Children's Garden. Try them as a hedgerow along your fence.
They make a great backdrop to perennials and colorful small shrubs like Neon Flash Spirea. They can even be added as very modern small trees in foundation plantings, as well.
Keep them at least 25 feet away from structures for the best air flow. Why not use a row of them along your driveway, if you have a sunny spot?
You'll create a wonderful legacy with fruiting trees. Orchards have been enjoyed for millenia, and people are rediscovering the joys of these valuable trees.
#ProPlantTips for Care
Plant Sweet Cherry trees in full sun with at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. They need well-drained soil and a planting site with good air circulation, too.
Carefully select a planting site that gets morning sun for Corum to keep the foliage dry. Avoid the use of overhead watering. Drip irrigation is best to keep your plants healthy.
Plant 12 feet apart from pollination partners. These trees grow into an attractive shape, and can be allowed to grow to full height and spread.
You can also choose to prune fruiting trees in late summer to keep them under 10 feet tall. Decide on the height and spread you want, and tip prune to keep them at that size.
