Whether you plant a single tree, a small cluster, or decide to line a drive. Your yard will be transformed by the inclusion of an Autumnalis Cherry. The Autumn Cherry (higan cherry tree) is a breath-taking sight to behold, adorning itself with abundant white/pink blooms that attract a wide range of pollinators prior to leafing out in the spring. Lightly textured bright green leaves blend soon emerge to blend with the smooth bark and circular shape of the canopy to create the epitome of round shapely trees providing structure and fullness through the summer months. With the arrival of cool temperatures in the fall, it is not uncommon for the autumn cherry to provide an encore of blooms as it transitions to a stately gold color that work well when partnered with the bright reds and oranges of maple trees or sweet gums trees.
Be sure to plant this tree in an location that you can see while you relax. Then you can enjoy the full blooms drifting from the tree like snow in the spring, the summer shape, and the light golden foliage with small cherries that attract song birds to the tree from fall to early winter.

We ordered 20 Autumn Cherry trees this spring, and we couldn't be happier with New Blooms. From the start, the owners were fantastic... clear communication, easy to follow instructions, and very timely shipping. That being said, they noticed a heat wave forecasted prior to delivery and got in touch with us right away to say they were going to ship our order once it passed. The trees arrived bare-root and in excellent condition, just as described. We got them planted right away and now mid to late summer the trees are thriving with new growth. We've been landscaping our property all spring and summer with 100's of new trees, shrubs, and plants, and our Autumn Cherry trees are definitely the highlight. New Blooms was definitely the very best company we've found.
