Cherry Blossom Tracker 2023

Springtime in University Circle...a photographer's dream! The blooming of Cherry Blossoms is weather-dependent and can occur anytime between late March and early May. Once bloomed, they can last up to 3 weeks unless there is damaging weather such as wind, rain, or even warm weather.

Follow along to see when the beautiful white and pink Cherry Blossoms and other spring blooms along Wade Lagoon and throughout the Circle will be fully bloomed.

Read this blog post about our favorite places to view the blooms in and around the Circle. 

Update: Thursday, March 16

  • Magnolia trees by the South entrance of The Cleveland Museum of Art are still budding nicely. Most likely will bloom within the next couple of weeks.
  • More Cherry Blossoms along Wade Lagoon are starting to bud. They should bloom probably in a few weeks, depending on the weather.
  • Flowers near the Cleveland Botanical Garden are starting to bud AND bloom! Did not see any Tulips yet on their grounds.
  • The Snowdrops in the Fine Arts Garden took a little bit of damage from the snow the other day, but appear to be bouncing back!

Update: Monday, March 13

  • Budding on the Cherry Blossoms has started! Not all the trees, but quite a few. 
  • The Magnolias in front of Severance Music Center don't appear to have any change since last Friday. The Snowdrops also appear to be the same.
  • Hopefully the recent snow doesn't do too much damage. 

Update: Friday, March 10
