Then & Now: Bleecker Street Cherry Trees


The row of cherry trees (Prunus serrulata 'Kwanzan', I think) in the NYU garden on Bleecker Street bloomed spectacularly this spring.  The trees were under-planted by several herbaceous perennials including tulips. The above scene was photographed in April and the one below in November.  The difference is dramatic but no less colorful. Read more about Kwanzan cherries at University of Florida IFAS Extension.
