What is Nishinomiya-gongendaira zakura
Nishinomiya-gongendaira zakura (scientific name: Prunus lannesiana 'Nishinomiya-gongendaira') is a group of Yamazakura (mountain cherry trees) propagated by biotechnology by Nishinomiya City in later years using seedlings of the gongendaira zakura in Kii Tomita. It is a cultivar of the satozakura family of cherry trees. The tree is 5-10 m tall, with rather coarse branching and oval leaves. It produces single, large, fragrant white flowers in early April, slightly later than Somei-Yoshino. The petals appear red with red veining over time.
