Prunus serrulata ‘Kanzan’
Acidic, Alkaline, Clay, Drought, Loamy, Sandy, Well Drained, Wet
This tree has very low wildlife value because it produces little or no fruit, and what is produced does not persist on the tree.
Named after a mountain in Japan, the Kanzan (Kwanzan) cherry tree is native to China, Japan and Korea. The original name is 'Sekiyama,' but it is rarely used. Introduced to America in 1903, it was made famous by the glorious floral displays at the annual Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C.
