The Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival officially begins today and the cherry trees have begun blooming. Around Shofuso and the Horticulture Center several trees have reached their full bloom. Philadelphia is lucky to host a variety of trees and many of them have yet to reach the heights of their beauty. Shofuso Head Gardener, Sandi Polyakov is predicting the peak bloom to come April 12-16.
