This gallery monitors the bloomming period of the Yoshino cherry trees around the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C. The planting of cherry trees originated in 1912 as a gift of friendship to the United States from the people of Japan. In Japan the flowering cherry tree or "Sakura," as it is called by the Japanese people, is one of the most exalted flowering plants. The beauty of the cherry blossom is a potent symbol equated with evanescence of human life and epitomizes the transformations Japanese Culture has undergone through the ages. The date when the Yoshino cherry blossoms reach peak bloom varies from year to year, depending on weather conditions.

Cherry Blossom in Washington DC Peak Bloom

West Potomac Park and the Tidal Basin with its flowering Japanese cherry blossom trees are under the care of the National Park Service. A horticulturist by the name of Robert DeFeo is the Park Service's cherry blossom expert and according to Mr. DeFeo peak bloom time (or peak bloom period) is defined as when 70 percent or more of Cherry trees are in full bloom. This is also the time which attracts tourists (both local and worldwide) to take pictures of cherry blossom trees so they can say they were a part of the DC cherry blossom experience.
