Where to buy Flowering Cherry Blossom Trees

Many people have called DCpages.com and inquired as to where they can purchase Japanese flowering cherry trees to plant in their own yards. This is understandable, as the cherry trees in downtown DC are such an incredible site it attracts visitors from around the world every year. It is indeed a surreal site to behold: tens of millions of white flower petals with the palest of pink hue floating from 5 feet to 60 feet off the ground: it feels as if you are walking through a cloud of flowers and yes, it’s that good. There is a local company called CherryBlossomGift.com that sells three different types of flowering cherry trees: the “Yoshino,” the “Kwanzan” and the “Weeping Cherry.” The “Yoshino” is a flowering (rather than fruit-bearing) hybrid whose origins are not known. Due to its hardiness and beauty it is one of the most popular flowering cherry trees planted world-wide and can grow up to 40+ feet tall and live over 75 years. The “Kwanzan” flowering cherry tree, a.k.a. Japanese Cherry, Hill Cherry, Oriental Cherry or East Asian Cherry, is a species of cherry native to Japan, Korea and China and is the second most popular tree planted in West Potomac Park on the Tidal Basin in DC and rather than the pale white of the Yoshino, the Kwanzan’s blossoms are deep pink. The third kind offered is the “Weeping Cherry:” natives of Japan, weeping cherry trees have long, drooping branches akin to weeping willows. In the spring, the Weeping Cherry is covered in white to pale-pink blossoms. Although a weeping cherry tree's vertical growth rate is moderate, the growth rate of its numerous weeping stems can be very fast. According to research, these trees will grow in every state in America except a handful of states in the upper Mid-West and Hawaii. They will grow in southern Alaska.
