And if you’re unfamiliar with the term of “peak bloom”, peak bloom is referred to when 70% of the Yoshino cherry blossoms have opened, which create clusters of white and pastel pink clouds that surround a portion of Washington D.C.

Keep in mind that these pretty and pink trees will typically bloom for no longer than several days so if you’re planning on visiting the budding trees, plan on taking a road trip sooner, rather than later.
