Product Overview

Accolade is 1 of the most sought-after ornamental cherry cultivars in North America, largely due to the fact that its brilliant coral-pink and shell-shaped blossoms are usually the first to open in spring. The Accolade tree is especially popular in New York and Southeastern states like Georgia and Florida. The translucent-pink shade of Accolade flowers is wonderfully unique, the blossoms seemingly glow with electricity when caught by the suns rays. They also grow in neat clusters, adorning the limbs from the tree trunk all the way to the tips. Accolade will continue to astonish year after year with its luminescent bouquets and is deeply appreciated as the perfect introduction to the natural gracefulness of spring.
  • Accolade is among the earliest blooming cherry trees
  • Translucent petals glow like neon in the sunlight
  • Unique coral-pink blossoms are shaped in the form of seashells
  • Leaves turn pumpkin-orange in autumn, giving accolade multi-seasonal interest
  • Accolade has received the award of garden merit from the royal horticultural society for its elegance and beauty

Cherry tree not growing
My cherry tree arrived on May 25th 2021. I planted it the next day . Followed the directions and as of today June 12th 2021 the tree has not done anything. Still looks the same as when it was planted. I am not satisfied at all with this tree. Looks like I planted a stick in the ground.

    Beautiful and Healthy
    I have had this tree for a couple of months now and it looks very beautiful and healthy. The tree came in a cardboard box with the roots surrounded by wet straw and wrapped in plastic. When it comes out of the box it resembles a walking stick. I planted it according to the instructions and water it when needed. The tree now has beautiful, lush green leaves at the top and bottom. I can't wait to see what it will look like next spring.

      It came in a box, which I expected; however, someone cut off the tree with a saw to fit it into the box. It was a nice size to the trunk base but who wants a "tree" with one branch. I was so excited to get this tree and was so disappointed that it would be years before I would get possible branches to even see a bloom. Plus who knows what the canopy would look like when if/it finally grows. Home Depot was very kind and allowed me to return the stick. I was able to get 2 trees there with branches and the nice start of an attractive canopy for less than I had paid for this one. So five stars for Home Depot customer service.

      The tree was Exactly the way it was described. The directions were clear and how to plant it. I would definitely buy A bear root tree again. It has done well and I look forward to it blooms.

      accolade cherry tree
      I ordered this tree online knowing it would be a sapling. When it was delivered, the entire top had been cut off. Along with all of the branches.

            its showing signs of life after a month
            Was very sceptical but finally its growing. It almost looked like a stick with bare root abd few dried branches. But its coming out of dormancy after a month. Seeing leaves. Its alive! Time to grow!
