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, reaching 40-50' in height and 25-30' in width, 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. *Deer May Rub*
