The Plant of the Week: Flowering Cherry

I pass the most gorgeous flowering cherry tree when I go to and from the temple. Unfortunately when I took my camera, it was dusk, so it's not the best picture ever, but this thing is really gorgeous. When I have my own yard to plant trees in, I think I'll have one of these. They are brilliant for about a month in the spring, and they are a little messy after that with dead flowers, but once they are cleaned up, they are very nice shade trees for the rest of the summer, although they don't produce any fruit.
