    Design IdeasFlowering Cherry is among the most beautiful of the spring blossom displays. The consummate tree of the Japanese tea garden and in other Asian landscape compositions. Just as traditional in cottage and country gardens or as common color accents in Washington DC landscapes. This upright Cherry is one of the most reliable for warmer winter regions. Plant as a single specimen, in pairs at entries and gateways, in groves to compound their influence or in regularly spaced rows along driveways or street side.
