Forgive me in advance if this is a dumb reply, but I assume you mean a cherry blossom, those quarter-sized flowers that wither quicker than they bloom?

Those don't normally start blooming until spring time and I've never heard of anyone "buying" one since you can just pick them up off the ground or collect from a park. Do you mean silk (fake) sakura flowers?

Even if (real) sakura could be bought/shipped, I doubt they'd last long without some kind of preservative treatment.

If you have cherry blossom trees where you are at, that's more or less the same. The white blossoms are said to be cherry plum blossoms and the more pinkish blossoms are the sakura Japanese enjoy watching and partying under around April.

This might turn into a dumb answer too, but are you talking about just the flowers/blossoms, or do you want a plant (a tree)?

Sakura (cherry) are trees, and they are not sold as cut flowers like you could with tulips or roses.

You're local garden centre will sell different type of sakura trees that you can plant in your garden and you can organize your own hanami party next spring.

The previous response is correct. Most garden centres would sell cherry blossom trees. They are not small plants though. They are actual large trees, not a potted plant.

You can buy miniature/bonsai cherry trees that are essentially small potted plants. They flower just like their larger counterparts, and I've seen them for sale around cherry blossom season. Not sure if they are available in your area though.
