Note: One of the first deciduous trees to bloom in late winter with bright pink blossoms and one of the few cherries adapted to the lower South. The Taiwan Flowering Cherry brightens the landscape in late winter and then fades into the background. The fruit, though showy, rarely last long before the birds devour the load. The Taiwan Flowering Cherry is used best as an accent species. By the end of the summer it usually appears thin and distraught.
