Are Washington DC's Cherry Blossoms Still in Bloom in 2014?

No. Peak bloom was April 10, 2014, and the cherry blossoms have come and gone for the year. Here are some photos of what you missed.

No. Peak bloom was April 10, 2014, and the cherry blossoms have come and gone for the year.

It was a later-than-average bloom because of a colder-than-average and long winter. We had late snows on the cherry trees and some scorching hot days around peak bloom. Peak bloom itself fell on a weekend, so if you were lucky enough to be in town then you were treated to a beautiful (and very crowded) spectacle.

If you'd like to see what you missed, all of the photos above are from 2014.

If you're looking ahead to the 2015 cherry blossoms, you can find much more information on the front page of the Cherry Blossom Watch site.

You can also sign up to receive 2015 Cherry Blossom Watch updates by email by using the handy form over to the right.

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.
