About Japanese Flowering Cherry Blossom

In Japan, cherry blossoms symbolize clouds due to their nature of blooming en masse, besides being an enduring metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life, an aspect of Japanese cultural tradition that is often associated with Buddhistic influence, and which is embodied in the concept of mono no aware, literally “the pathos of things” and also translated as “an empathy toward things”. The association of the cherry blossom with mono no aware dates back to 18th-century scholar Motoori Norinaga. The transience of the blossoms, the extreme beauty and quick death, has often been associated with mortality; for this reason, cherry blossoms are richly symbolic, and have been utilized often in Japanese art, manga, anime, and film, as well as at musical performances for ambient effect. The flower is also represented on all manner of consumer goods in Japan, including kimono, stationery, and dishware.

Here’s a Grow Kit that can bring the beauty of cherry blossom trees to your own yard or garden, and, each spring, you’ll be greeted by a riot of pink flowers in celebration of your home’s very own Cherry Blossom festival!

Japanese Flowering Cherry Tree Seeds

Japanese Flowering Cherry
(Prunus serrulata)

The Japanese Flowering Cherry tree is a beautiful tree that grows 15 to 25 feet tall. White to pink flowers bloom from mid April to early May. The Japanese Flowering Cherry is widely used as a landscaping tree – for streets, lawns and parks.

Sun: Full sun to partial shade.

Growth Rate: Medium to fast growing

Soil Type: Adaptable to most soils but prefers damp, well-drained fertile soils.

Zones: 5 to 7

Germination Range: 50-70%

Stratification Requirement: 30-60 days warm stratification followed by 90-120 days cold moist stratification. Before starting the warm stratification – soak seed in room temperature water for 48 hours. Change the water after 24 hours.

Indoor Planting: If your seeds require stratification or scarification – do the recommended pretreatment before planting indoors. Planting Instructions: Fill a container with seed starting mix to about ½ inch from the top. Place your seeds 1 inch to 1 ½ inches below the soil surface. Gently water your seeds to keep moist, not soaking wet. Heat & humidity is critical for germination. Germination may occur in 1 week or as long as 3 months (depending on the species). Place the seed container on a heat mat under growing light(s). Keep your growing lights on 14 hours per day. Keep your heat mat on 24 hours per day. Once your seeds germinate, move each seed into its own container under the growing lights and on the heat mat. Keep your seedlings indoors for 2-3 months before transplanting outdoors in the spring (May to June).

Outdoor Planting: If your seeds do not require stratification: the best time to plant tree and shrub seeds outdoors is after the last frost in your area (spring). In the Northern states – the best time to plant seeds outdoors is from May to June. If your seeds require pretreatment: you should plant your seeds outdoors before the ground freezes in your area (late September to early November). Your seeds will naturally stratify during the cold winter. Germination usually occurs in May or during the spring season.
