March 18, 2010 - Cherry Blossom
Back in the early eighty's my younger brother asked that I design the landscape for his new home in the west hills of Portland. It is a very large home built on a hill top, so there were a few obstacles but I got the job done. After the landscape was installed it turned out beautiful if I don't say so myself. As a thank you for a job well done he purchased this Mt. Fuji Cherry for me. I have maintained the canopy fairly short and in a sort of an umbrella shape. I just love the big pendulous double flowers of this specimen and if I happen to be working out front someone always stops and comments on how nice the tree is.
