In the spring, the famous cherry blossoms in Washington DC are covered in beautiful pink and white flowers, followed by fresh green leaves. During the summer, they’re covered in a thick covering of dark green leaves. In the winter they’re completely bare. Here’s what they look like in the fall as they lose their leaves.
Want to Help Support DC's Cherry Trees?
If you'd like to help support the care and upkeep of the cherry trees around the Tidal Basin, the Trust for The National Mall has launched an Endow a Cherry Tree Campaign. Donations go to the official Cherry Tree Endowment, which will give the National Park Service additional resources to fund the care, maintenance, and possible replacement of the cherry trees. You can find more information here.
The Trust is dedicated to marshaling private support for maintaining and improving the history National Mall area. I'm not affiliated with the Trust--just an admirer of their efforts.
