Spring pink

Words fall short to describe the essence of Spring, its fragrance in every breath!

Spring came suddenly, bursting upon the world, as a child bursts into a room, with a laugh and a shout, and hands full of flowers, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Such our my feelings these days. A dazzling pink Kwanzan cherry tree greets me everyday, just as I step out of the house. As a rule, I stand by its side admiring it for a few long minutes before getting on with my routine. One can’t do much other than be in awe of its beauty. And I confess, I’m totally mesmerized by its existence. Like beginning of young love, that feels inseparable, eternal.

Sometimes as I stand there, the huge cluster-like carnation blossoms swing to and fro with the breeze. It is such a sight to watch the deep pink double flowers swinging. One can feel the pure joy of its existence.

Kwanzan Flowering Cherry
Also called a Japanese flowering cherry, Kwanzan  is easily one of the most dazzling and showiest of all cherry trees. The blooms are a clear pink, double flower. While still in bloom Kwanzan will start to grow young bronze leaves. And as summer progresses the leaves will settle into a glossy light green with a slight red tinge making it a wonderful shade tree as well.

Kwanzan is one of the hardiest and easiest to grow flowering trees. It grows rapidly to a height of 20-30 feet, loves full sun and will thrive mostly in any soil. Planted around a deck or patio the Kwanzan cherry tree creates an enchanting outdoor living space.

Bloom where you are planted

Positively stunning in spring, the tree will be around for weeks. The deep pink color, and twice as many blooms as any other cherry tree, Kwanzan cherry adds a lot of character to any street, garden or patio.

As I look at the marvelous creation of nature everyday, it feels like nature is singing and dancing once again. And I too want to dance to it’s tune now and forever.
