A cherry blossom is the name for the flower of cherry trees known as Sakura (Japanese kanji : 桜 or 櫻; hiragana: さくら) in Japanese. In English, the word "sakura" is equivalent to the Prunus serrulata, Japanese flowering cherry. Cherry fruit (known in Japanese as 桜んぼ sakuranbo) comes from another species of tree
