Is there a Japanese dwarf cherry tree ?
Hello all. I am brand new here. I bought a house about 6 months ago and with it came a very run down koi pond in the back yard. The pond is in great shape now and has given me so much enjoyment that I've decided to build a Japanese garden around it.
I would like to include a cherry tree in my garden, but due to space issues I need a dwarf cherry tree. Something along the lines of 10-15 FT tall. I found a website that has dwarf cherry trees but I am wondering if all cherry trees are Japanese or if some wont look right? Also on the website it talked about some trees needing another tree to fruit and some can produce fruit on its own. Do I need a tree that fruits or just one that blooms?
PS: For anyone in the LA area; I visited the Japanese garden at Cal Poly Pomona today and found it to be wonderful. Its small but very nice.
