Prunus serrulata 'Kwanzan'

Buy Kwanzan Flowering Cherry online. Hardy and well-known, this cultivar combines show-stopping flowering display with great foliage and habit. Double rose-pink flowers are abundant and appear in early spring before the foliage. New foliage is also interesting in that it comes out a bronze color quickly changing to dark green. Fall color is excellent for a cherry, with bronzy orange or orangy red hues. Our own-rooted starts eliminate the problem of unsightly graft unions and our source material is virus free (VC). The strongly vase-shaped habit is also very useful as a structural element in the landscape. 'Kwanzan' and 'Yoshino' are the predominant species in the famous plantings of Japanese Cherries in Washington D.C.
