Sakura Journey: Japanese Cherry Trees Arrive in Washington, D.C.
The backstory of Washington, D.C.’s famous flowering cherry trees features four determined and exceptional individuals, each with ties to two countries, the United States and Japan. One was a trailblazing female journalist, another an eminent scientist; a third made was known as a “plant explorer,” the fourth First Lady of the United States. How they came to make common cause in importing an exotic tree to America—a cherry tree that produced no cherries—is the subject of this virtual walking tour that takes in sites along the National Mall and beyond. You’ve marveled at the dazzling display of Japanese cherry trees in bloom each springtime. Discover how and why they came to be planted.
