The Arboretum’s collection of cherry trees includes some rare native species, some plants collected early in E. H. Wilson’s career, and many not easily found in the nursery trade. Join horticultural technologist Kit Ganshaw, who cares for plants in the Bradley Rosaceous Collection, as she shows off some gems in the genus Prunus. We’ll gather near the Forest Hills Gate where, in a small area, we will be able to explore a diversity of unusual cherries in bloom. Meet at Acc. # 706-31*B Prunus cyclamina on Tuesday, April 19 at 3:00pm.
