No, it’s a flowering cherry tree!
These trees will surely bring a flurry of flowers to brighten your yard. I highly recommend driving by The Greenery in late March to witness this “pink cloud” tree in its full glory. Even better, take a stroll through the rose garden and enjoy the flowering beauty up close and personal.
‘Akebono’ is the variety pictured above in full bloom. The bright pink flowers are more pink than other flowering cherry varieties. It has a standard upright form, reaching 25′ tall by 25′ wide. It is a notable variety for the disease resistance and yellow fall foliage.
‘Kwanzan’ is loved for the double petals, which make the flowers look like little pom poms. They are also a rosier color than most. This variety has a more upright vase form and grows 30′ tall by 20′ wide. Fall foliage is orange-red.
‘Okame’ has long-lasting bright, single pink flowers. It grows into an upright, oval form, 25′ tall by 20′ wide. Green foliage in summer turns yellow, orange and red in Fall.
