The Japanese apricot (Prunus mume) is trying so hard to bloom. You’ll find it in several spots at the Garden — the front berm, near Hilliard Road, and around the new Cherry Tree Walk. Speaking of which, we are in a for a special treat very soon! The Cherry Tree Walk, planted last year, will bloom for the first time this year. We’ll be sure to keep you posted with bloom updates. Stay tuned.
