The Japanese word for cherry blossom trees is Sakura and is roughly translated as "Japanese flowering cherry." The flowers are referred to as cherry blossoms. There is a common misconception that these trees produce cherries, but they actually don't.
The fruit-bearing cherry tree is a completely different species of tree. The cherry blossom tree's name comes from the soft and pretty pastel pink blossoms they produce. The cherry blossom tree is known for its short yet beautiful blooming season which ends with an inevitable fall to the ground. For Japanese people, this symbolizes the way of human life where rising, blossoming, and falling are part of our natural destiny.

If you would like to plant and grow one of these flower producing trees, then review the steps below. All Prunus seeds have what is known as embryo-dormancy - dormancy that is not the result of a hard outer seed coat. For this reason, the seed requires a period of cold stratification to break dormancy.
Begin the cherry seed germination period at any time of year. It may take up to one year to germinate. If you are planting in a pot, place about 2-4 seeds per pot to insure at least one seed germinates. Place pot in the refrigerator for 4-6 weeks to stimulate stratifying in the winter.
1 Pour enough warm water into a bowl or bucket to cover the weeping cherry seeds. Drop the seeds into the water and allow them to soak overnight.
2 Moisten enough peat moss to completely envelope the cherry seeds. Wring the excess water from the peat moss until it holds the moisture content of a damp sponge.
3 Push the weeping cherry seeds into the peat moss and place the bundle in a plastic bag or box. Seal the bag or box and place it in the refrigerator. Allow the seeds to remain in the refrigerator for three months.
4 Fill planting pots with sterile seed germination mix, moisten it and allow the excess water to drain completely before planting the cherry seeds.
