   Kwanzan cherry tree is the showiest of all Japanese cherry trees. The Kwanzan cherry trees most awesome feature is its bundles of large double pink blossoms. The blossoms on the Kwanzan cherry tree last longer than those of other flowering cherries. After awhile the flowers begin to fade and the tree is left with green leaves and bark. Its bark is somewhat glossy. The flowers on this tree are very unusual due to their large size.
Kwanzan cherry tree is in the United States, but are primarily found in Japan. This is one of the Washington basin cherry trees given to the United States by Japan years ago for planting at our nation's capital. This tree blooms in mid to late April.

 Crimson King Maple Acer Platanoides
Crimson King Maples have an excellent dense maroon red foliage all summer. Straight trunk with a well shaped crown. A Crimson king will give you dense shade when mature. The leaves on a Crimson King are similar in shape to a Sugar Maple but like most Norway Maples they do suffer from leaf scorch which browns the leaf edges in late summer. Tar spots can be a minor problem on the leaves of a Crimson King but seldom do any harm. Crimson King trunks can crack from sunscald on the southern side during the winter in zone 4 causing some trunk decay, but the tree usually remains intact. Crimson King will attain a height of 50' or more and are hardy from zone 4-7. The tree is easily transplanted, grows quickly, is adapted to a wide variety of soils including alkaline, sand, clay and acid soils. We grow Crimson King maples in rootbags up to 3" diameter trunks and 15' high. This simplifies the digging process and assures of nearly summer long digging. Crimsons can also tolerate coastal conditions. Crimson King also tolerates extremely dry soils and polluted air. Well adapted to street tree plantings, it is often overused. Crimson King Maple's dense shade and shallow root system competes with lawn grasses, and the shallow roots can make mowing under the tree difficult. The shallow roots can heave sidewalks so be certain to locate the tree 4 to 6 feet away.

Round, double-toothed, light green leaves (2-3" long) typically turn an undistinguished yellow in fall.

Planting a garden under this tree is impossible, as it has roots that will take over all the ground under it, so be sure to plant these way away from any septic or sewer lines! These trees will vary in height and can ranges anywhere from 30 feet up to 50 feet, the best zones for a taller tree are zones 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. These trees will thrive in almost any type of soil, but enjoy acid type soil the best for the best results in height and flower
