Why plant Royal Burgundy Japanese Flowering Cherry?

Beware: This Burgundy is truly intoxicating! The ruffled, pink blossoms that appear in the spring will cast a spell over you as they nestle demurely against the purple foliage that lasts all season long. The leaf color is simply spectacular! Who said redheads can’t wear pink? This red-leaved version of the beloved Kwanzan Japanese Flowering Cherry will keep the color coming even after the blooms are spent. The maroon leaves hold their color all summer and turn flame-red before dropping in fall. This tree will be a dramatic statement in any landscape design. For Pete's sake, dig a hole and pour one in!

Sometimes new trees come about from years of work by breeders. Other times, all it takes is one lucky person with an eye for detail. Royal Burgundy was a result of the latter—all of the trees with that name came from a single branch on a Kwanzan Cherry that spontaneously produced red leaves. Thomas Earl Wilson of Speer and Sons Nursery in Oregon was the man with the sharp eye. The parent plant, Kwanzan, is a beloved old variety that stars in Washington, D.C.’s Cherry Blossom Festival every year.

How to use Royal Burgundy Japanese Flowering Cherry in the landscape?

Like Kwanzan Cherry, Royal Burgundy grows into a wide vase shape in time and makes a good candidate to arch over a path or sidewalk. Or, make this ravishing red-leaved Cherry tree a favorite destination in your landscape by putting a bench or a couple of comfy chairs underneath its colorful canopy.

How To Plant Royal Burgundy Japanese Flowering Cherry

These Flowering Cherries like being planted in sunny locations but ‘Royal Burgundy’ is a little picky about where they spread their roots. There are those “lucky” trees that Japanese Beetles like to munch on and Flowering Cherries are one of them. There are a few ways to prevent or control beetle damage to your trees. Insecticide concentrates and sprays are available that can either be watered in around the base of the infected tree or sprayed on the foliage or beetles.

How To Water

Flowering Cherries do not like sitting in wet soil. Once you have your Cherry planted, make sure the soil is moist, without being constantly wet. In drought conditions, be sure to supplement watering.

How To Fertilize

As with most trees, a once a year fertilizing for the first few years will give your tree the nutrients it needs to provide new, healthy growth and flowers for the following season. We recommend fertilizing in spring with the Bower & Branch Elements Plant Food.

How To Prune

Pruning the Royal Burgundy Flowering Cherry is best done when the tree is dormant. As a 'dwarf' Cherry, it doesn’t need much pruning at all, except to trim an occasional errant branch or to remove any damaged or diseased branching.

How Does Shipping Work?

Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our big trees, sizes XL and bigger, require expert delivery and care, that means our extra-large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care. We deliver your trees and plants directly to you. Ask Bower & Branch about planting services – we'd be happy to assist in installation.

*For Big trees and Shrubs, Size XL and bigger: Review our Seasonal Shipping Timelines and Policy here.

Your trees and plants are grown across the United States at various Bower & Branch Growers. Depending on your location, your plant orders may be shipped from various locations. Please expect orders with multiple items to be delivered over a number of days as a result. Orders made up of numerous items or selections will not arrive at your home on the same day.

Shipping Delays:

From time to time, Bower & Branch Growers may determine to delay order shipment based on various factors for plant health. Weather in your region, as well as, where your plants are grown, is always considered when shipping. Extreme weather conditions may delay some or all of your order. Bower & Branch allows our Growers to make final shipping decisions based solely to benefit your trees and plants’ health and success.

How Does Sizing Work?

The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)

Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.

All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
