Mapping the Blossoms



All this warm weather is leading to a lot of pale pink skin on display — that of D.C.’s cherry blossoms, that is. Get out there and enjoy the early blooms, which the National Park Service recently predicted will begin on Sunday.

The historic trees in the Tidal Basin are a sight to behold, certainly, but our Technical Services department has created a map of cherry trees all over the District. Discover a cherry-blossom-lined walk in your own neighborhood or venture out to admire the trees in an area of D.C. new to you.

You can also view this full-screen on a mobile device.

White dots are the familiar Yoshino cherry trees, turquoise dots represent snow goose cherry trees, pink dots mark the location of the pink double-blossomed Kwanzan cherry trees (which bloom about two weeks after the Yoshino), and red dots signify all other cherry trees, which include black cherry, edible cherry, Okame cherry and weeping cherry trees.

Find other trees in your neighborhood with Technical Services’ other maps.
