Prunus x yedonensis

The Yoshino Cherry--a vigorous-growing, small, ornamental tree-- is what brightens the D.C. Tidal Basin, among other places, every spring. Its habit is upright and spreading creating a graceful open pattern.

Its flowers are single, light-pink to white, and slightly fragrant. This tree needs good drainage, so plant on a slight slope, or place gravel or washed stone in bottom of hole.

Leave top of root ball about 4-6” above the grade. Add mulch to cover.
