The Kwanzan cherry blossoms are coming into full bloom now and looking lovely.
Kwanzan Cherry Blossoms
The Kwanzans bloom a couple of weeks after the more famous and numerous Yoshino cherry blossoms. There's over 400 of them split between a large grove and some smaller groves on Hains Point/East Potomac Park.
The Kwanzan cherry blossoms are close to blooming, and warm temperatures in coming days will coax more and more of them out over the next couple of weeks.
The Kwanzans are now showing green buds, the first of the visible development stages. Warm weather over coming weeks will wake them up and speed things up a bit.
The Kwanzan cherry blossoms are much earlier in their development and look to be riding out the cold snap comfortably.
The Kwanzan cherry blossoms around East Potomac Park and the FDR Memorial haven’t fully popped yet, but it’s possible to find some scattered flowers out.
The cherry blossoms are mostly done now. There are a few late stragglers still hanging on despite the rain, but strong winds tonight and tomorrow morning will likely be a knockout punch.
There are still flowers on the trees, even if they’re well past their prime. At least there are until the rain and wind rolls in over the next few days.
The Kwanzan cherry blossoms are particularly pretty and tend to come out 10-14 days after the Yoshinos. So if you miss the end of the Yoshino cherry blossoms’ bloom, the Kwanzans can offer beautiful consolation.
