What is the difference between Sakura and Cherry Blossom?

Yes, it's sakura season! However, it seems that many foreigners (and some Japanese) tend to confuse the sakura, or cherry blossoms, with two other pink 5-petal flowers, which also bloom almost at the same time. In contrast, sakura have long stems and form multiple-flower clusters, which make them a lot more dramatic.

Can you trim a mugo pine?

The principal rule when it comes to mugo pine pruning is this: do not prune in the fall. Pines do not produce new buds from old growth. That means that the tree will stop growing from any pruning points if you cut branches out of season. Instead, prune mugo pine in spring and only trim the new growth.
