From the White House Gift Shop the Washington DC Cherry Blossom Mug. This bright and colorful mug encompasses the spirit of the Washington DC National Cherry Blossom Festival showcasing the Washington Monument, Jefferson Memorial. and blooming cherry blossoms.

The National Cherry Blossom Festival is Washington, DC’s and the nation’s greatest springtime celebration that annually celebrates the gift of the cherry blossom trees and their symbol of enduring friendship between the citizens of Japan and the United States.

The National Cherry Blossom Festival is planned to coincide as nearly as possible with the blooming of the trees. Peak Bloom Date is defined as the day on which 70 percent of the blossoms of the Yoshino cherry trees are open. The mean date of blooming is April 4. The blooming period starts several days before the Peak Bloom Date and can last as long as 14 days. The cherry blossom trees currently grow in three National Park Service locations: around the Tidal Basin in West Potomac Park, in East Potomac Park (Hains Point), and on the Washington Monument grounds.

The planting of the cherry blossom trees originated as a gift in 1912 from the people of Japan to the United States as gesture of friendship and goodwill. Since then, the number of trees has expanded to approximately 3,750 trees of 16 varieties on National Park Service land.

Commemorate your Washington DC National Cherry Blossom Festival trip with this fun and beautifully detailed mug!
