Flowering cherry in zone 10
Hi, I am just getting started in gardening. My wife would very much like to have a flowering (yoshino) cherry tree in our yard but it is hardiness zone is 5-8. We live in zone 10 (los angeles).
Zone 10 seems to be a special climate zone without extreme temperatures, so I'm thinking that it might be ok. The nursery said to plant in morning sun but they can't guarantee it will survive. Does this sound accurate? Can anyone explain to me what about my zone might not be healthy to the cherry tree and maybe some tips on planting for success.
We would love to have this tree in our yard, but a half dead tree would just be depressing. Thanks for any help.
