The red small creeping sakura are amongst the most pretty when in full bloom. Weeping cherry trees have drooping branches and are among the most common cherry trees in Japan. There are two types: trees with blossoms of five petals and trees with blossoms of more than five petals. The latter are called Yaeshidarezakura and bloom about a week later than the 5-petaled ones and the former are Shidarezakura.
