Shibazakura is from North America. It’s also called tweet.
The flowers look like cherry and creep on lawn. And “shiba” means lawn and “zakura”(sakura) means cherry blossom. So it’s named the lawn cherry plant or shibazakura.
The seedling settles in sunny side and good drainage soil.

Shibazakura grows so fast and strong that there are no extra cares needed when it flowers.
