Prunus x incamp

Buy Okame Cherry online. The Okame Cherry tree is one of the spring's earliest of the flowering cherries showing us spring has arrived. The glory of the Okame cherry is the abundance of rosy pink flowers in late winter and early spring.The showy pink flowers last 2-3 weeks. As autumn arrives the foliage turns to bronze orange to orange red and the bark is an attractive shiny reddish brown color making it a tree for all seasons. As a young tree it displays a broad-columnar habit; mature trees develop a more upright, arching habit.Read more: Facts About the Okame Flowering Cherry | Garden Guides

Customer Testimonials

Very impressed by the quality of plant and the packaging. I've never seen a mail order plant in such pristine condition. It was arguably in better shape than some of the specimens I have bought locally. Will look to your website more in the future, particularly for the other magnolia trees I am looking to add to my collection.
