The Black Republican cherry tree is a true marvel of horticulture that effortlessly combines elegance and productivity. with its distinctive dark purple-black cherries, this variety stands out among its counterparts, catching the eye of every passerby. Adaptable in USDA growing zones 5-9, this tree flourishes in warmer regions, reaching a mature height of around 20 ft. Black Republican cherry trees are a heat tolerant and cold hardy variety of sweet cherry trees. They sprout white flowers in the spring and keep their green foliage all throughout the Summer months. Its fruitful boughs are adorned with lush, glossy green foliage that gracefully rustles in the breeze, adding a touch of sophistication to any landscape. Their leaves gradually turn yellow as autumn sets in. A parent of the Bing Cherry, the Black Republican cherry tree is a hardy tree that is one of the best pollinators for other Sweet Cherry varieties. The cherry tree grows best in full Sun, slightly acidic and loamy soil and needs another sweet cherry tree to cross pollinate. We recommend Bing, Black Tartarian, Rainier Sweet, Stella or Napoleon cherry.

How to Plant
STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) 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.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. 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.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
