A Yoshino Cherry Tree in Full Bloom!

I know that you know that I like Yoshino Cherry trees. I thought I would highlight the Yoshino cherry tree that is flowering in our front yard so that you can enjoy its blooms too! Here's why the Yoshino makes a great garden tree: they grow relatively fast, they look great when in bloom and when covered in leaves, and I've noticed very few pest problems (the deer rubbed it once). Here are a few more good reasons to plant a Yoshino cherry in your garden:

Are you ready to plant one yet?


  1. Yummy Cherries to come soon! Great shots, Dave!

  2. It has gotten big and is gorgeous! I always admire them so. Maybe I can convince my neighbor to plant a few:)

  3. Wow, what a beauty. Sure would look pretty in my front yard. Does it have edible fruit?

  4. Thanks Chandramouli!

    Unfortunately it doesn't produce edible berries.


    You should try to convince him if you don't have the room.


    No, no edible fruit but it sure is fun to watch each year!

  5. What a gorgeous tree, their flowering here too. :)
