The Japanese have a term for appreciating cherry blossoms from bud and bloom to the blankets of fallen petals that eventually accumulate: hanami. This cycle will be on full view as the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s 220 cherry trees show off their floral display. Tours of the collection, the largest of these trees outside of Japan, as well as of the other Japanese plants on the grounds, will take place at 3pm on Saturdays and Sundays during the show.
