Yoshino Flowering Cherry
The Washington DC Cherry Tree
The Yoshino Cherry Tree (Prunus x yedoensis) is so beautiful and graceful that it’s the star of The Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC. Every year thousands of people converge on our nation’s capital to see the hundreds of Yoshino Cherry Trees in bloom.
Thanks to Nature Hills Nursery, though, you can now bring home a bit of that world-renowned beauty to your own yard.
Your Yoshino Cherry Tree bursts into bloom in spring and the flowering will last for several weeks. The young blooms are a pale pink that matures to white with a slight pink hue. The clusters of flowers are so bright they almost glow.
A nice bonus to the stunning flowers is the wonderful, almond-like smell they give off. Light spring breezes will carry the scent throughout your yard.
As summer swings in and the flowers disappear, green leaves and shiny black decorative fruit take their place. Then, when summer gives way to fall, the glossy dark green foliage turns a deep golden-orange.
Your Yoshino Cherry Tree performs best in full sun in any well drained soil. It grows very quickly to 20 feet. One tree will be the focal point of any neighborhood. Imagine how your driveway will look flanked by a pair of these trees, or even lined down its length. Make sure that you plant this tree where you and your neighbors can enjoy it.
Since these trees are so highly coveted for their beauty, ease and fragrance we can’t guarantee how long this year’s stock will last, so please reserve yours today!
