What is Ukon zakura
Ukon zakura (scientific name: Cerasus Sato-zakura Group ‘Grandiflora’) is a horticultural variety of the Rosaceae Prunus genus Oshimazakura-based satozakura. From mid-April to early May, light yellowish green double-flowered large flowering flowers called turmeric color (depressed gold) are brought into bloom.
