Portland, OR. Officials at the Portland Japanese Garden are getting a lot of questions about the state of the Garden’s famous cherry blossoms. They say, “The rains and recent sun are urging the blooms along.” The Flat Garden’s Weeping Cherry is showing more pink every day.

The Yoshino Cherry trees tend to bloom in the week or two after the Weeping Cherry.

In Portland, the blooming cycle is typically in March and April, although each year, weather patterns can result in a delay by 2–3 weeks, resulting in a March end to May cycle.

The exact timing of blossoms in the Portland Japanese Garden continues to depend on the weather, but you can follow the Garden on Facebook and Instagram for the most updated images of what’s in bloom. To learn more about the varieties of flowering plants you can expect to see blooming throughout the garden, check out Glimpse of Spring to read more about the flowers anticipated.
