Yoshino Cherries offer an amazing show of light-pink/white flowers in the Spring that are most recognized for their beautiful displays throughout Washington D.C.. Yoshino cherries are graceful ornamental trees with a beautiful, spreading, broad canopy. Flowers are followed by small black cherries which are bitter to humans but loved by birds. Foliage turns yellow with bronze tints in the fall. They are a great tree due to their beautiful canopy, beautiful flowers and great fall color. Also of note, cherry trees can handle Long Island's salty coastal conditions.
