How do you celebrate spring? For many, it means a visit to Washington, D.C., for the National Cherry Blossom Festival. I can tell you, from the year I lived in our nation’s capital, all it takes is a strong breeze for it to “snow” thousands of delicate petals. (By the way, the cherry blossom trees located along the Tidal Basin were a gift from Japan in 1912.)

If you can’t make it to D.C., why not plant your own celebration of spring. Here’s a look at four types of flowering cherry trees and expert tips from HGTV on how to plant them. I’m going to ask my neighbors if they’ll let me cut some small branches from the ones that line the side of their house, so I can make this Flowering Cherry “Tree” in a Vase flower arrangement.

    I love the cherry tree in a vase and sadly I don't have any neighbors that have a cherry blossom tree to borrow some branches do you think I can buy it from a flower store.
