Okame Cherry Description

Okame Cherry Tree grows best in full sun or partial shade with loamy, well-drained soil. 

The Okame cherry buds appear red towards the end of February and into the first week of March before opening into white flowers.

This tree will grow best in full sun or partial shade with loamy, well-drained soil and prefer horticulture zone 4, falling between 34° North latitude and 51°N. The okame cherry tree requires no severe problems if grown in a healthy environment. It works great as a screen, decorative accent, or low wall.

This cherry tree, also known as the sakura, is small and deciduous in the Rosaceae (rose family).

Okame Cherry Tree will reach 15 to 25 feet at maturity.

This small, deciduous tree thrived in milder climates and was a gift from Japan to our capital in the early 1900s. Today, it's the one you see featured in Washington DC's annual "Cherry Blossom Festival" each spring.

This tree is perhaps D.C.'s best-known symbol of springtime, and it has been for more than 100 years! People from all over come to see this "lucky" tree each spring when the pink blossoms appear.

It will reach 15 to 25 feet at maturity. Its bright pink flowers appear for about two weeks each spring before petals fall to make room for decorative fruit.

It has small, dark red flowers and dark black fruit at the end of each branch. This tree has almost no serious insect or disease problems and is easy to grow from seed.

That is the Big Ben of cherry trees as they reach 15-30 feet tall at maturity, making them the tallest tree around. The small and delicate blossoms are white and blossom around late March to mid-April on this tree. This variety is about 3 ft wide and 2-3 ft tall at maturity.
