Prunus serrulata 'Kwanzan'

Prunus serrulata (Kwanzan Cherry)

Kwanzan Cherry

Oriental cherry grows 15 to 25 feet tall. Oriental cherry prefers full sun, is intolerant of poor drainage, and is easily transplanted.

A regular fertilization program with slow release nitrogen is recommended to keep plants vigorous. Too much nitrogen in the soluble form could stimulate sprouting. This plant is considered mostly allergy free and causes little or no allergy problems in most people.

Kwanzan Cherry has poor tolerance to drought, compaction and wet soil. It should be located on a site with loose soil and plenty of moisture. Not for an urban parking lot or exposed street tree planting where borers and other problems normally attack. It has some tolerance to salt, and tolerates clay if well-drained.
