As a short background i brew my own home made wines and was wondering if the tree i am about to talk about is a cherry blossom tree and is it poisionous ?
anyway I came across a tree about a week ago which i assumed was a cherry blossom as it had pale pink flowers in clusters and looked alot like what you see in the japanese kung fu movies. I picked a bag full of flowers off the tree and froze them for use in my wine making. I then went home and compared the flowers and twigs to what i could find on the internet and i came up with what i consider an exact match .
ichiyo cherry Blossom. (From Google)
anyway after thinking i had an exact match i boiled the flowers down as i do with my usual method for wine making and they smelt alot like Marzipan
but after thinking about what i did i realised i was abit stupid because the flowers could be poisionous so i went back after a week to take some pictures so i could ask on the forum but the tree had no flowers on it anymore. i took some pictures of the leaves etc and was wondering if anyone could help.
does cherry blossom smell/taste like marzipan ?
Are there any trees with poisonious flowers ?
and are these images below a cherry blossom (please ignore the one above as that is taken from google) ?
if you need anymore information in order to help me just ask.
