This is not a question. Douglas Justice did a write-up and photos on Akebonos for the April 6, 2007 Botany Photo of the Day, so thatâ€™s where to find out about those. One thing to add: This cultivar is often confused with Somei-Yoshino. Some distinguishing features are listed under the Somei-Yoshino thread. Somei-Yoshinos have not been planted recently in Vancouver, so it's a fairly safe guess to call young trees that look like this Akebonos.
