The Yoshino Cherry is a deciduous, flowering tree that yields a profusion of fragrant, pale pink-white blooms in the spring. The tree's bark exhibits a glossy quality, and its foliage is dark green in the summer and yellow in the fall. These qualities make the Yoshina a great specimen tree. The tree has a medium growth rate and is hardy to -05 degrees (Zones 5-8). It can reach a height of 40-50 feet and a spread of 25-40 feet. For planting, the Yoshino prefers full sun and moist, well-drained soil. USDA ZONES: Zone 5, Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8.

Most Plant Me Green trees can be shipped and planted any time of year, unless the variety is specified as only seasonal delivery (such as bare root trees). Our shipping schedule is Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. This is to ensure our trees do not stay in a box longer than necessary and arrive to you as healthy as possible. If a package needs to arrive prior to a specific date, or at a more convenient time for you, please notate that upon placement of your order. On some occasions, severe weather and other unusual issues can delay shipping and delivery of your Plant Me Green package. Holiday shipping schedules are set by the carriers.
First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need. Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system. Once the tree is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material. Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets. When finished, water thoroughly. To insure your plants a successful growth rate and productive life, plant your seedlings per the instructions included in your PlantMeGreen package.
Flowering cherry trees need 8 hours a day of direct sunlight and lots of water to thrive. Water regularly without over-watering. A slow, long watering is the best. Flowering cherries need a 4 foot diameter of unobstructed space to grow in. In order to encourage a strong tree structure and vigorous growth, prune in late fall or winter.

5-6ft tall Yoshino Cherry -

It's March here in Va. The trees arrive in good shape, well packaged, and in plastic containers. There were a few young tender shoots broken, but that's expected. Just planted them in the ground so it's too soon to tell, but they do look green and healthy.
