If you drive around the cherry nurseries, you can see these plants without even getting out of your car

We have records of 1,058 plants in the genus Prunus in our collections. Not all are still alive, not all are here at the Arboretum, and not all are cherries. Still, we have a lot of cherries and a lot of "different" cherries. Sure the Yoshino's at the Tidal Basin are nice and the Kwanzans in upper Northwest; the Weeping Higan's, and 'Snow Fountains' around town are beautiful. Still, it's fun to see this incredible variety of cherries planted at the Arboretum.
