We’re almost positive the saying “pretty in pink” comes from someone marveling at the beauty that is the Royal Burgundy Flowering Cherry tree (Prunus serrulata ‘Royal Burgundy’). Grown for its coloring more so than its berries, this tree’s character is sure to stand out in anyone’s garden and bring a splash of intensity to landscapes.
Picking just one feature of the Royal Burgundy Flowering Cherry to label as the most striking is next to impossible. How is one supposed to pick between the glowing pink cherry blossoms that sprout in the spring and the deep burgundy shade of the leaves that blanket the tree underneath?
Luckily, planting one of these trees in your yard ensures you don’t have to pick just one feature, you get them all! Friends and strangers alike will want to know what tree you have in your front yard that creates such a magnificent contrast.

Each blossom emits a fragrance that rivals any store bought perfume. For those lucky enough to have a Royal Burgundy in the springtime, clipping a few flowers off the tree and bringing them inside is the perfect way to make the house smell of fresh cherry blossoms!
The dark leaves and bright blooms make it a much sought-after plant in urban landscapes and have become a staple in cities such as Washington DC. Plant one by itself or in a group of two or three for a grove effect. They also work wonderfully planted in pairs on either side of entryways or gateways.
No matter how you use it in your landscape, you won’t be the only one who loves the tree. Your local pollinators will as well! Butterflies and hummingbirds will come from near and far for a chance to snack on the nectar of a Royal Burgundy blossom.
Deciding where to plant a Royal Burgundy is quite easy. Simply find a sunny spot where the tree can soak up the sun along with well-drained soil and you’ll have a very happy tree. Extra watering is also required during the warmest times of the year if there is little rainfall.

They smell wonderful, too, with a light fragrance. Spring breezes will carry the scent throughout your yard.
Yoshino is an incredible specimen shade tree with an outstanding flower show in early spring. Dark green leaves provide shade all summer, then mellow for another display of fall color.
The deep golden-orange highlights the end of the season. The leaves are accented by tiny decorative fruit that feeds local songbirds.

Planting a flowering Ornamental tree in the garden is a fantastic way to add accents of color and a whole bucket full of beautiful blooms. However, choosing which color can be difficult, they are all so incredible! White gives the yard a sense of pristine calm but pink stands out like no other. There’s no reason to go back and forth trying to make a decision, choose both! Shirofugen Flowering Cherry (Prunus serrulata ‘Shirofugen’) offers a continuously changing show of pinks and whites all through its bloom season!
The flowers bud a light pink color at first and then, over the course of the blooming process, brighten to white. They stay white for a while, but not for long. Just as you start longing for a little more color, the blossoms transform into a deep pink with mauve reaching from the centers.
Not to be outdone, the leaves of this spectacular tree are just as showy. They sprout a crimson-flushed bronze and darken to a lush green during the summer. The leaves make for a fascinating follow-up to the intensely pink blooms of late spring. Once fall arrives, the tree gives you one more color to marvel at as the leaves turn a reddish-orange before finally falling for the year.
During the magnificent bloom, few activities are as pleasurable as simply opening the windows and letting the scent of cherry blossoms fill the room. Picking a couple of blooms off the tree and bringing them inside will also give any home that sweet fragrance, along with adding a splash of color!
As if Shirofugen Flowering Cherry’s beauty and fragrance weren’t enough, this ornamental tree brings pollinators such as butterflies and hummingbirds to the garden each bloom season! Watch as the tree comes alive with the flutter of winged pollinators in search of a tasty snack.
Keeping the tree happy is quite easy. As long as it’s planted in a sunny spot with well-drained soil, Shirofugen will thrive! It’s a plant it and forget about it tree that is perfect for the new grower who’s just getting started but still wants a showstopper!
There are so many ways to incorporate a Shirofugen Flowering Cherry into a landscape. Of course, a grove would be incredible, but planting one by itself as an accent to the luscious green of other trees is just as breathtaking! Try planting one on either side of a driveway or entryway for a lasting first impression on those who visit!

If you want a showy ornamental tree, the Okame Cherry Tree (Prunus ‘Okame’) will have your neighbors saying, “Oh my gosh, what is that and where did you get it?” This is one of the earliest blooming Flowering Cherry blossom trees and flowers beautifully from Canada to Central Florida.
Each year in late winter or early spring, well before other trees are waking up, the Okame Cherry blossoms put on an incredible display. Carmine-pink flowers open on bare stems before the leaves emerge. This ethereal display will thrill you and stir your soul.
The blooms last for a particularly long time compared to other Flowering Cherries. The rosy-pink flowers have a mild fragrance.
It’s no wonder Okame trees are on display each year at the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C. Visitors to this annual event will always remember how glorious these trees are in full bloom.
Okame blooms well in both the hot and humid South or the hot and dry West. It has a “low chill” requirement, so the blooms are reliable.
The further north you go, the more colorful the fall color display becomes. In colder climates, the Okame’s leaves turn a brilliant coppery orange-red with hints of yellow. It’s a magnificent finale for the year.
Even in winter, the tree has appeal. Once the leaves are gone, the textured reddish-bronze bark with its striking raised lenticels (pores) add an enormous amount of interest.
Okame will grow about 1 to 2 feet a year. It does great in almost any soil, but it must be well-drained. Give it full or part sun and prepare to be amazed.
This is a superstar specimen tree for the planter bed in the front yard, or outside your kitchen window. Japanese Gardens call out for the Okame to accent them. Give it plenty of room to reach its full mature height and width (spread), because you won’t want to prune off any of the pretty blooms.
This tree is great by itself, or when planted in groups of 3 to create a shaded area in the yard or to grace a patio. You’ll plant them 15 to 20 feet apart, measuring from the trunk of the first to the trunk of the second.
A loose triangle looks amazing! Vary the spacing a bit between each tree to create a very natural-looking grove.
Underplant these trees with spring bulbs and perennials like Hosta and Coral Bells. Add a few shade-tolerant evergreen shrubs, like Yew or Fragrant Sweet Box, to add structure to the planting. Hydrangea bushes can extend the season of interest, and Nature Hills has many to choose from.
Add your “supporting actor” plants while the Okame is small, so they have a chance to get themselves established together.
A classic look would be to create an alle, or double row, running along your drive if you have the space. Recreate the look in a smaller yard by placing a pair on either side of your entryway. You’ll love the feeling of walking through clouds of rosy-pink blooms.
This concept can also be used to create a destination in your yard. Why not create a special “Garden Room” away from the patio and house, and use 2 or 4 trees to line the path? Use shade-tolerant groundcovers like Purple Wintercreeper underneath the trees for a perfect, low-maintenance look.
This is also a great tree for an office or storefront to attract early spring attention. Everyone will be talking about it. Be sure to add exterior lighting and “uplight” directly into the canopy to capture attention at night, too.

- Blooms in Hot and Humid South, and Hot and Dry West

Luxurious blossoms of delicate white burst forth each spring on the branches of Mount Fuji. Larger than any of the other cherry tree varieties.

When the tree isn’t in bloom, it is still quite beautiful with its dark green lance-shaped leaves blanketing the crown.
While the Mount Fuji Japanese Flowering Cherry tree doesn’t produce the fruit as we know it, it does grow cherry-like berries that birds love to snack on after flowering for the season. If you’re an avid birdwatcher, then you’ll want to put this tree somewhere you can marvel at its different colors.
This tree has qualities for all! Not a bird enthusiast? No problem! The semi-double flowers also bring with them a heavenly fragrance each spring that’ll have you absolutely in love. Japanese Cherry Blossom is a perfume often sought after and you could have it growing right in your front yard!
As if all that wasn’t enough, planting a Mount Fuji Japanese Flowering Cherry tree is one of the best ways to guarantee visits from your local pollinators! Butterflies and hummingbirds will flock to the blossoms, creating a lovely fluttering show for you to enjoy along with the flowers.
Due to its tolerance for heat, humidity, and pollution, this specimen makes the ideal front yard showstopper. Mount Fuji is also deer resistant, meaning it’ll be just as safe if planted in places deer are often seen. Plant one by itself or multiple in a cluster for a magnificent effect each year. They also look especially lovely as a pair planted on each side of a driveway or entryway.
When thinking about planting, keep in mind that Mount Fuji Japanese Flowering Cherry loves the sun and should be put somewhere it can bask all day long.
