Flowering cherries grow easily and fast and fit all sorts of spaces.
Edible cherries generally come from cultivars of the related species Prunus avium and Prunus cerasus.
Cherry blossom are also closely related to other Prunus trees such as the almond, peach, plum and apricot, and more distantly to apples, pears and roses.
