The Cowra Breakout - Cherry blossom - Netflix

A cherry blossom is the flower of any of several trees of genus Prunus, particularly the Japanese cherry, Prunus serrulata, which is called sakura after the Japanese (桜 or 櫻; さくら). Currently it is widely distributed, especially in the temperate zone of the Northern Hemisphere including Japan, Nepal, Taiwan, Korea, China, West Siberia, India, Iran, and Afghanistan. Along with the chrysanthemum, the cherry blossom is considered the national flower of Japan. Many of the varieties that have been cultivated for ornamental use do not produce fruit. Edible cherries generally come from cultivars of the related species Prunus avium and Prunus cerasus.
