Cherry Tree Blooming

Anonymous added on March 19, 2018 | Answered

Our Okame Cherry trees have yet to bloom this spring and they normally bloom very early. The trees have been budded out but only a couple of blossoms on both trees. We had a very significant drought last year and I wonder if this may have a bearing on this.

Yes, drought will have an effect of flowering, the tree likely needed to save energy and did not produce flowers.

Check with your local County Extension Office to see if others are reporting lack of flowers in your region.
