Cherry Blossoms in Macedon

A quick post today of this beautiful cherry blossom I found whilst walking in Macedon on the weekend. Cherry blossoms are of the genus Prunus, which includes fruit trees like plums, cherries, peaches, nectarines and apricots. There are several varieties of cherry blossom. It is a tree that is definitely on my 'list of trees to plant in my garden'. The variety I want to grow is Prunus Sargentii.


  1. Hey Alex,

    Did you manage to get a Prunus Sargentii?

    1. Not yet but I will definately get one this spring. I can't afford a semi established one so I'll buy a small one and wait.
