Flowering cherry

Prunus

Plant flowering cherries where they'll be visible through a window, then enjoy these garden centerpieces in all four seasons. Their graceful weeping branches are laden with pink confetti-like blooms in spring, and the satiny bark shines to best advantage when bare in winter. Many offer wonderful fall foliage to complete the beauty.
