The Higan cherry tree (also known as Autumnalis, or winter flowering tree) can produce a profusion of flowers from November through to April in mild weather. The 1,000 year-old 'Miharu Takizakura' in Fukushima province is regarded as the most beautiful cherry tree in Japan. Approximately three percent of the cherry trees growing in the National Mall in Washington DC are Higan Cherry Blossoms.

The average Higan Cherry can reach a range of 25 to 35-feet tall and wide tree. Specimens usually have multiple trunks with slender upright branches, and a rounded canopy. As the Higan matures it often grows wider than grows tall. Before the leaves appear in spring, the trees are covered with many semi-double pink flowers. Higan flowers may also appear in autumn and winter if the weather is sufficiently warm. The one to four-inch-long dark green leaves are later joined by the appearance of small, black berries. The leaves cast light shade below the spreading canopy, and turn attractive fall colors of yellow and bronze before dropping.

Our Nursery's Customer Care Approach

We're excited to have you as part of our tree-loving community, and we want to ensure your tree-planting journey starts off on the right foot. 🌱

While we do our best to ensure that your tree seedlings are ready to thrive when they arrive, sometimes accidents happen. If your delivery encounters any hiccups along the way, like damage during shipping, missing items, or unsatisfactory products, please don't hesitate to reach out to us within 14 days of receiving your package. We're here to make it all better! 🌳

Here's what to do: Simply snap a quick picture of the tree and send it over to us at 202-285-3238, along with your order number. We'll jump into action to set things right for you.

Now, we want to let you in on a little secret! Some of our trees and plants might arrive in a state of dormancy without their leaves. But fret not, because these hardy plants are actually less susceptible to transplant shock and have a fantastic track record when it comes to planting success.

You see, as the seasons change and leaves start to change color in late August and September, many of our trees are already preparing for their cozy winter slumber. During this time, they conserve their energy and resources, which makes them resilient and ready to flourish once spring arrives. So, when your tree arrives with its branches seemingly bare, remember that it's simply getting a head start on its beauty sleep, all in preparation for a magnificent display of foliage when the warmer months return. 🍂🌳

Rest assured, your tree is not only hardy but also incredibly wise in its ways. And as you nurture it through the seasons, you'll witness the breathtaking transformation of its leaves when the time is just right. If you ever have any questions about the timing or care of your tree, don't hesitate to reach out , we're here to help your garden thrive! 🌿🌼
