Akebono is a beautiful and hard-to-find flowering cherry tree with flowers that rival the outstanding beauty of the Yoshino cherry tree. It has commanded our respect for its beauty, and you also get the seasonal benefit of it flowering just before the Yoshino cherry tree.
This is one of our favorite magnolias. It is a hard-to-find semi-evergreen retaining about 50% of its leaves through the winter, and develops many flowering buds blooming June through August. It is a faster growing variety of Sweetbay Magnolia, and produces the same beautiful lemon scented flowers. This is the tree that everyone wants to see out their window full of lush green leaves, and especially in mid-winter! It is highly recommended!
