The Hunt of Cherry Blossom

 Cherry Blossom, from Wikipedia

I've read from my friend's blog that Cherry Blossoms (Prunus serrulata) can live and bloom in Indonesia. We call it, in Indonesia, Sakura flowers. That's a good news for me. 
They are planted in the area of Selorejo Dam, Malang by a Japanese consultant. 

The origin of Cherry Blossom is Japan. In Japan, Cherry Blossoms bloom once a year in Spring.
But, in Indonesia, they can bloom twice a year.  

For Japanese, Cherry Blossom is a symbol of women, life, and death. That's why you can find the picture of Cherry Blossom on
kimono, stationery, and kitchen set.

I'm really interested in having a Cherry Blossom tree. I will contact the saler to ask the price and the suitable climate for it. If the price is reasonable and the saler tell me that Cherry Blossom can live in Yogyakarta, I will collect it.
