How to Use Zuzu® Dwarf Flowering Cherry in the Landscape

This plant makes it so easy to add season-long color to your balcony, while hiding unfortunate modern views. Use several of them as an exceptionally pretty screen.

For container-grown plants, select a pot at least 24-inches in diameter. Resin works beautifully, or splurge on a high-end glazed selection.

Ensure your pot has plenty of drainage holes. Elevate the pot on bricks, or clay pot feet.

Draw eyes to your commercial property with a pair flanking either side of your front doorway. Heads will definitely turn to see these springtime beauties.

In a residential setting, they'll look incredible anywhere that gets at least four hours of sunlight. Repeat them along the back of your perennial gardens as an exciting backdrop.

Try them behind a special piece of garden art. You'll effortlessly amplify the effect of this unique feature.

A hedgerow planted behind your patio seating area adds structure, color and grows into an effective screen. For a close planting where the canopies touch, plant them two feet apart on center, measuring from the center of one to the center of the next.

Underplant them with other spring-flowering bulbs like pastel-colored Tulips and Daffodils. We have such an extensive catalog of spring-blooming plants to help you celebrate this special time of year.

Decorate the corners of an outdoor pavilion or gazebo to make the most of a terrific showing of Zuzu. The fastigiate branching lends a formal look to your flower garden.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Grow your Zuzu in either full sun or partial shade. They will need well-drained soil that sheds water quickly.

Support the performance with an easy addition of Nature Hills Root Booster to your backfill soil while planting. Mycorrhizal fungus, and other proven ingredients support the tiny feeder roots ability to access micronutrients over the entire lifespan of your plant.

Apply a medium amount of water regularly, especially when the plant is young. If you live in a dry climate, they'll do best with afternoon shade.

Add a three-inch layer of mulch to keep the root system cool and moist. Pull mulch back from directly touching the trunk.

If you want to prune to shape, or hold it to a smaller size, wait until the flowers are done. Prune right after the flowering is finished for the season, as they produce blooms on old wood.

Please move quickly if you see Zuzu® Dwarf Flowering Cherry in stock on our site. As you might imagine, garden designers are hunting for this special Proven Winners® variety for use in their clients landscapes.

Don't miss out on your spectacular spring show!
