what colour are japanese cherry blossoms?
😌while most cherry blossoms are a shade of pale pink, they can be white, dark pink, or even yellow! in fact, japan is home to over 200 varieties of sakura, including wild and cultivated types🤩
my favourite type is🌸kawazu-zakura (on the photo👆🏼), it is a special bright pink type of cherry blossom that blooms around early february - early march, earlier than other species most people are familiar with (like the classic 🌸yoshino cherry — the most commonly cultivated variety of sakura in japan, so pale pink, that the flowers nearly appear to be white)🌿
on top of their early blossoms, these flowers are generally staying in bloom for around one month, creating a truly beautiful contrast with the blue sky on sunny days😚! plus, kawazu-zakura are lower, so it’s easier to take photos with them😏✌🏼
