Since 2004, Howard County has been home to a growing number of Kwanzan Cherry Blossom trees. To date, over 1,800 trees have been planted thanks to Blossoms of Hope. Enjoy spring's early warmth with a visit to any of these Howard County attractions and catch these beautiful pink flowers in action. These trees traditionally bloom about 2 weeks after the famous trees in Washington D.C.
