27 Shiogama cherry trees, which is one of Double-Flowering cherry trees designated as a national Natural Monument, and 200 cherry trees such as the Yoshino cherry, Double-Flowering cherry, and Weeping cherry trees blossom add colors to the spring season. Today, most of the cherry trees are 40 years old. The Shiogama cherry blossoms are characterized by varied pistils with two or three pistils that change into blue leaves, and a short stalk. They have 35 to 50 petals with vertical wrinkles, and the tip of the petals forks off into two to five parts making it look like a saw. The Shiogama cherry trees usually blossom in the beginning May every year, later than other cherry trees.
