Eye Candy: Cherry Blossoms are Starting to Pop!
by Jonah Holland, Public Relations & Marketing Coordinator, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden
We promised you we’d let you know when the Cherry Tree Walk was budding up and starting to bloom and it’s well on its way! As we mentioned earlier, it’s really a guess as to when the peak bloom time will be but some varieties (Prunus campanulata ‘Okame’ and Prunus mume ‘Kobai’ as you can see in the photos) have already started blooming! This weekend and next weekend (Easter Weekend) you’ll see some prime blooms. Please keep in mind that since many of the trees are still getting established, blooms will be lighter this year than next.
