Prunus yedoensis 'Shidare Yoshino' is the revered Cherry Tree that grows along the banks of the Potomac River in Washington, D.C. Extremely pendulous, in early spring its arching branches fairly drip with bast clusters of almond-scented, single flowers. Appearing before the leaves, these blossoms create a heavenly, white cloud effect, enrapturing any who see it.

After the blooms have been cast to the spring breeze, small 1/2-inch, shiny black fruit appears, much to the delight of area birds. Light green summer foliage turns a rich golden-orange in fall, then gives way to the winter display of deeply furrowed brown bark.

A fine specimen tree in full sun and well drained soil. Grows quickly to 15 feet in 10 years. 26 feet by 35 feet at maturity. Zones 6-8.
