In this Philadelphia Inquirer article, Jason Parker from Davey's Horsham, Pa. office talks about how warmer temperatures are effecting the cherry blossoms.

Posted: March 21, 2024

Vince Marrocco, director of horticulture at Morris Arboretum & Gardens in Philadelphia, calls this one of the “weirder springs that I can remember.”

And that weirdness, which came with recent unseasonable warmth, has blossoms of some species of cherry trees peaking early at the arboretum.

“They’re at the peak of their bloom and others are going to be in peak bloom in a couple of weeks,” Marrocco said Tuesday. “We’re predicting the peak cherry bloom to be around the end of March. It should be about the seventh or 10th of April … we’re a good 10 days well ahead of where we ought to be.”

Although a cold spell is forecast for the days ahead, which may cause the pink and white blooms to brown, the trees will survive.
