The City and MSPC are working together to remove a damaged and failing ‘Shogetsu’ flowering tree near the Conservatory. We have already purchased a replacement ‘Shogetsu’ that will be planted in nearly the same location.
Gardenia.net calls the Shogetsu “One of the finest Japanese cherries” and describes it as “a broad-spreading small deciduous tree with charming double flowers held in showy, hanging clusters of 3-6 blooms that can be up to 6 in. long! The foliage of fresh green young leaves warms up to red and orange shades in the fall.”
