Prunus x yedoensis

Our specimen Yoshino cherry tree has been in full bloom for over a week, but tonight I fear the stunning pink blossom clouds will be short lived as temperatures are supposed to drop into the 20’s. In a few days the high should reach 70 degrees again. Go figure! It’s that time of year.

Adapting to most soils, this beauty with its upright branching structure appears quite uniform and symmetrical in shape, can grow 30-45 feet, and basks in full sun.
