Grafted pink and white cherry blossoms

Grafted pink and white hybrid cherry tree

Today’s photo comes from my next-door neighbor’s tree, a most unusual tree. The pink comes from the ornamental Kanzan cherry tree. The tree has been grafted onto the rootstock of another, hardier variety–a native wild cherry with white blossoms. These flowers are not from two different trees that are growing side by side. There is only one stump so looking at the tree when the blossoms are in full bloom in April is a bit shocking.
