crazy cherry

Posted by
Hiro (Kyoto, Japan) on 26 September 2016 in Plant & Nature.

You know cherry usually blooms only in spring. But it can bloom in autumn. It is called 狂い咲き kurui-zaki in Japanese, it literally means crazy blooming. Insect damage by hyphantria cunea is said to be one of its cause.
