Yoshino Flowering Cherry
Beautiful, fragrant flowering cherry tree
The Yoshino Cherry Tree (Prunus x yedoensis) is so beautiful and graceful that it’s the star of The Cherry Blossom Festivals in Washington, DC and Macon, GA. No need to travel though, you can enjoy the show right outside your window.
The Yoshino Cherry Tree will announce the arrival of spring when all of its pink buds burst open. The young blooms are a pale pink then mature to white with a slight pink hue. The clusters of flowers are so bright they almost glow.
While the sight of your Yoshino in bloom is stunning, the fragrance is not to be missed. Light spring breezes will carry the rich almond scent softly through your yard.
As the petals drift away, green leaves and small, shiny black fruit appears. The birds will delight in the tree’s fruit during the summer months bringing the tree to life. When summer gives way to fall, the glossy dark green foliage turns a deep golden-orange.
Your Yoshino Cherry Tree will perform best with full sun in any well drained soil and would be beautiful as an accent tree. This versatile tree would also be perfect near a deck or patio for shade and breathtaking planted in a row.
No matter where it’s planted the Yoshino Cherry Tree will be a show stopper.
