The National Park Service has called the peak bloom date for this year as April 10.

The blossoms are considered to have reached peak bloom when 70 percent of the flowers are open.

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.

  • Hello David,
    I saw your latest post that today April 10th 2014 is peak bloom.
    If I plan to visit Saturday will I still get to see the blossoms.
    After peak bloom will it stay for couple days.

    • I should have a new update with photos tomorrow, which should give us a better idea of how they're shaping up for the next few days.
