Okame Cherry Tree

Okame Cherry Tree is a lovely ornamental tree, a deciduous species most famous for its abundant pink or rose-toned blossoms that emerge each year in the early spring.

The tree will grow best in the full sun in U.S.D.A. plant hardiness zones 5 through 8. They enjoy enormous popularity from the lower midwest through the mid-Atlantic region to the deep south.

Wholesale Nursery customers treasure this tree's graceful beauty and the famous bright pink blooms.

Okame Cherry Has a Special Place in American History

As you might suspect from the name, this ornamental tree is a native Japanese species and Japanese Maple Tree. It made its first impression on the American populace when Japan gifted these lovely specimens to America in 1912. This gift was a gesture of goodwill and friendship.

The National Park Service installed these fantastic trees along the Tidal Basin, adjacent to the National Mall in Washington, D.C., for the public to visit and enjoy. Hundreds of thousands of tourists arrive annually to enjoy these blossoming trees' beauty.

Each petal has several small, disc-shaped petals formed into a small cup shape in the signature rosy pink. The incredible springtime beauty, delicate body, and greenery of its summer foliage became part of the American story. Today's gardeners treasure this story as much as their innate loveliness.

The Okame Cherry Tree Is Easy to Love...and Even Easier to Care For

The tree is relatively petite for a tree. It reaches a maximum height of around thirty feet but averages just over twenty feet. It needs only about an inch of weekly watering.

When you plant your tree, it would love a generous amount of organic compost or hardwood mulch. You can refresh the mulch or compost about two or three times per year to feed the tree the required nutrients. This practice will eliminate the need to fertilize the tree constantly.

The Okame cherry tree and Kwanzan Cherry Tree are resilient and hardy. It tolerates drought, heat, frost, and pests. It's also disease-resistant.

Last year, I planted three of these. They were performing so admirably that I yearned for more! They arrived looking weak, and the drought that we are experiencing is severe. Despite this, it has been able to endure.
