Regarded one of the most spectacular of flowering trees, the Yoshino cherry, Prunus x yedoensis, is highly celebrated for its thousands of showy, almond-scented blossoms coming out all at once along its bare branches in early spring and then quickly falling. Light pink in buds, the single flowers, 1.5 in. across (3-3.5 cm) sport 5 petals, first opening pale pink and fading to near white as they mature. Blooming for 2-3 weeks, they are held in clusters of 5-6 blossoms and give way to small, shiny, black fruits which are quickly devoured by birds. Native to Japan, the Yoshino cherry also has many other interesting assets such as a graceful branching pattern, glossy bark and dark green leaves which color well in the fall. Description courtesy
