Early Cherry Blossoms: Kawazuzakura

Today, as I was going shopping, I happened upon a pleasant surprise.  It was Kawazuzakura, or Kawazu cherry trees.  This variety is from the Izu Peninsula of Shizuoka, and is a bright pink.  It blooms from late February to mid-March.  Very nice surprise, don’t you think?

    I just saw some at one of my local parks. it was pretty cool. The trees were still small and not full grown so I can only imagine what they look like when they are bigger like in your picture
