Peak Bloom: 3000 Yoshino cherry trees. 108 years.


Tokyo Mayor Yukio Ozaki and his wife in Washington on March 27, 1912. On that day, the couple presented the City of Washington with 3000 Japanese Yoshino cherry trees.


Peak bloom this year in DC—when approximately 70 percent or more of the blooms are open—was Friday, March 20. The Yoshino blooms will hold up for another week.
