Comments: There are many varieties of cherries that have various flowers sizes and colors. White to dark red are colors in flowering cherries. They may be relatively tall growing, dwarfs, and can be weeping. Most are relatively cold hardy, but do not like the high temperatures and humidity of zone 8 and higher. Cherries, like peaches, have a chilling requirement that must be satisfied in order that they grow and flower well. watch for scale insects on bark and June beetles eating leaves.
