Bonsai art Tokyo , How to care Kanzakura

I’m Nobu, I like traveling overseas and in Japan, visited 25 countries. I’ve got the license of the certificate English guide in Japan for 8 years.

I show you hidden Japan which you have never seen and heard of!

Kanzakura ( winter cherry blossom)

I came across the Kanzakura bonsai at Kokufu bonsai exhibition at Tokyo Metropolitan art Museum.

This is the bonsai version of the cherry blossoms.

As you already knew cherry blossoms are beloved by the Japanese people.

You can enjoy viewing the blossoms at home.

The flower color is whitish pale pink.

Blooming continues little by little from autumn to spring.

When it blooms from fall to winter, it is smaller in size.

And when it blooms in spring, the flowers are larger than those in fall and winter.


Keep it outdoors in a well-ventilated location in full sun throughout the year.

It is cold hardy and can survive the winter outside.

If you want to keep it indoors while it is in bloom, you can bring it inside for a few days.

Be careful not to expose it directly to the wind from the air conditioner.


The plant likes water very much.

When the surface of the soil dries out, irrigate it generously.

You had better water it until the water flows out from the bottom of the pot.

(In spring and fall, water once or twice a day, and in winter, once every 2 to 3 days.)

Be careful not to run out of water, especially during flowering and in summer.

Water the leaves as well (leaf watering).


Apply fertilizer three times a year:

In April after flowering, in May, and in September.

You put “oil cake” or a commercial solid fertilizer.

After flowering

After flowering in April, remove the flower petals cleanly.

After that, new shoots will grow, so cut off overgrown branches along the contours around June.


Time: November or late February to early March before sprouting

Frequency: About once every two years

(Repot when drainage is poor or when roots come out from the bottom of the pot)

Soil: Red ball soil 7:sand 3 (Kiryu sand, Fuji sand, etc.)

Harmful insects

Aphids: Prefer new shoots.

They appear from April to October.

Growing points

If the branches are strengthened by sufficient irrigation, sunlight, and fertilizer, flowering will improve.

Even if the leaves burn a little in summer, give it plenty of sunlight.

How is it?

You can care Kanzakura by yourself !
