Cherry Blossom Coloring Page – The cherry tree is a flower of several trees of the genus Prunus, particularly the Japanese cherry, Prunus serrulata, which is called Sakura after the Japanese (桜 or 櫻; さくら).
They are currently widely distributed, especially in the temperate zone of the northern hemisphere, including Japan, Nepal, India, Taiwan, Korea, China, western Siberia, Iran, and Afghanistan. Together with the Chrysanthemum, the cherry blossom is considered the national floriculture of Japan.
Many varieties cultivated for decorative use produce small, unpalatable fruit. Edible cherries usually come from cultivars of the related type Prunus avium and Prunus waxesus.
