Someiyoshino / ソメイヨシノ

Updated: Apr 15, 2020

【Somei Yoshino / ソメイヨシノ】


Somei Yoshino (very famous cherry blossoms) has just started blooming.

It was produced in the village called Somei in Tokyo (Toshima Ward in today’s Tokyo) by crossbreeding of Edo Higan and Oshimazakura in the late of the Edo Period. 

Since seeds are very fragile, it is normally reproduced by grafting.

Their life is numbered though (about 7 to 10 days), they always make us happy and heartwarming at this time of year. 

We should appreciate beauty of nature.
