Weeping Higan Cherry

The weeping higan cherry tree has slightly transparent white-to-pink flowers that bloom in late winter to early spring. It then turns green for the summer and yellow in the fall. They can be found on the west side of Sheep Meadow, on Cedar Hill, and in Conservatory Garden on the Woodland Slope. The most impressive collection of trees is at the southwest corner of the Great Lawn.
