The Taiwan cherry is a small deciduous tree that blooms in January or February with one-inch, pink flowers that cover the tree’s naked branches.

The flowers of this Florida-Friendly tree mature into small red fruits that attract songbirds.

After Taiwan cherry drops its leaves in fall, it still offers good winter interest through its reddish-brown bark.

This tree is best suited for areas of North and Central Florida, and can grow up to 20 feet tall and wide. It prefers full sun, but will tolerate some shade.

The Taiwan cherry lives for only 10 or 15 years, but that’s still plenty of time for you to enjoy its beauty.
