An Okame Cherry Tree will add festive pink spring blooms for two to three weeks to your yard or garden space. The Okame Cherry is somewhat smaller than the pink Kwanza Cherry and so it provides an nice pink alternative for smaller spaces. In the spring this tree is covered in pink blooms that will attract a wide range of pollinators to your space. In the summer it maintains green leaves with a vase-like shape as it grows to a more rounded shape when fully mature. In the fall the leaves will turn a bronze-gold-orange color before drop from the branches. Over time this tree will reach a mature height of 20-30 feet with a 15 to 20 foot spread.
