Spring has officially sprung, and if you’re like me, you might be a little sad about having to miss out on the annual cherry blossom festivals that will be taking place all over the world. We might not be able to go and see the cherry blossoms in bloom due to social isolation guidelines, but now, you can plant your very own cherry blossom tree for under $40.
The online selection at Home Depot is quite large for both indoor and outdoor plants. However, what’s really exciting is that they’re selling a variety of gorgeous cherry blossom trees, including the Kwazan Cherry Blossom Tree Bare Root ($38, Home Depot) all ready to be planted into the ground.
Cherry Blossom trees bloom in the springtime, and people gather in Washington DC, Japan, and New York to celebrate their annual blooming. Each year, there are festivals where tourists and locals gather to bask in the pink tint of the cherry blossoms. The little flowers give off a heavenly scent, and they’ll make a lovely addition to any yard or garden.
The Kwazan cherry blossom tree blooms with beautiful orbs of bright pink cherry blossom flowers. It’s one of the easiest cherry blossom trees to grow, and requires little maintenance! Just make sure you plant it in a sunny spot with deep soil. They come in different sizes and can grow a foot to two feet each year, eventually reaching 15 to 20 feet. When you walk underneath the tree, you’ll be bathed in a soft pink light and the sweet smell of the flowers. A Kwazan cherry blossom tree will also grace you with another late bloom in the fall, when the leaves will turn bright red.
If you don’t have much of a green thumb, but want to enjoy the beauty of a cherry blossom tree, Home Depot is also selling an artificial Cherry Blossom Tree ($104.02, Home Depot) you can keep anywhere in your home. Whether real or faux, at times like these, having a pretty thing to look at can help make the days seem a little more pleasant.
