Spring is Here!
For a Few Days, NIH’s Cherry Blossoms Reach Full Bloom
The cherry blossoms sprinkled around NIH’s Bethesda campus reached peak bloom at the end of March.
Each spring, the blossoms typically reach peak bloom in late March or early April. Peak bloom varies depending on weather conditions. Once peak bloom occurs, the blossoms remain on the trees for about a week. Wind, rain or cooler temperatures can cause the petals to fall off faster.
