Kwanzan Cherry Tree Blossoms - May 2022
The Cherry Blossoms are in bloom. At least in our backyard. The photos below show our Kwanzan Flowering Cherry Tree in bloom with pink flowers and red-to-maroon foliage. Those leaves turn out ordinary - green-colored - as the Spring and Summer wears on. This tree was bought in Mid-May in 2017 as we were still building our new house. We planted this ahead of our occupancy and had to baby it as the heat of Summer arrived.
2017: Bloomed (when purchased) in mid-May.

2019: No blooms. Looked like it wanted to in mid-May.
2020: Bloomed (during the pandemic) in early May.
