Campus Gardens

Prunus serrulata 'Kwanzan'
Kwanzan double pink flowering cherry
Family Rosaceae

These common colorful cherries grow huge and thick, 50+ feet with dense foliage and flowers. Most colorful (and messy) of all cherries on campus. Vase shaped until old and then more rounded. They produce no fruit, but the beauty of their falling blossoms injects the spirit of winter into the warmth of late May. These giant trees provide large shady areas perfect for hostas, ferns and a sitting area for sipping lemonade. Located at the center of campus where three are closely planted near the library and also in the Arboretum. Zones 6-8.
