Cherry Blossom

Somei Yoshino


Somei Yoshino are nearly pure white, tinged with pink near the stems. These trees are part of a collection in Redwing Park, Virginia Beach, VA to celebrate Virginia Beach's sister city Miyazaki, Miyazaki Prefecture, Kyūshū, Japan.


Native to China, with many populations gifted or introduced to other countries around the globe.


Some gorgeous sakura trees were in bloom last spring near my home. I'm not 100% sure I have the exact variety correct.
