Bare Root Prunus Kanzan Cherry Tree Click the link for Containerised Kanzan Flowering Cherry Tree
Show and splendour describes the Kanzan perfectly. Spring foliage is a coppery red turning green and then orange in the Autumn. Expect the foliage to be strong growing with an upright spreading habit, almost like a vase shape. Rightly so, the Kanzan Japanese flowering cherry tree has being given the RHS Award of garden merit.
When planting the Kanzan aim for a full sun position for best results. It will tolerate clay and chalk soil although a bit of organic matter will help it along. Sheltered or exposed positions are ok to plant in as are acid, neutral or alkaline soils. Even though it will tolerate chalky soil, if you have a thin bed of it and then rock, you will not get good results.
The Kanzan is considered a medium tree. Expect it to be around 6m at 10 years. Depending on local conditions it may grow more or stall. It may grow to around 10m, either way, you can prune the tree to keep it at the height you desire.
Kanzan is supplied at a height of between 150+cm but is usually more than that.
Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.

Do I Need To Stake My Bare Root Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
All Our Trees Are Grown In The UK
As far as we know, none of our trees have sneaked off for holidays abroad and so are UK Grown.
Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it.
Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots.
Have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other issues.
