The Weeping Yoshino cherry tree, or Shidare Yoshino, is a steeply pendant form of the Yoshino cherry (Prunus x yedoensis). The tree is small, and the weeping branches hang right down to the ground - covered with dense clouds of single white flowers in early spring.
Like most of the Yoshino cherries, the blossom appears before the leaves in early spring, creating a striking effect. The flowers often have an almond-like scent.
