    It can't be 'Shiro-fugen', which opens white from light pink buds. There are still enough buds on this to tell that it opens dark pink from red buds. But as in 2008, it is just past peak bloom now, when 'Kanzan' have completely dropped their flowers. It seems to have more petals than 'Kanzan', but if it were blooming at the same time as those, I don't know that I could tell the difference.

    A few Autumnalis Rosea flowers to see at 3564 SW Marine Drive. Very sparse.

    Shujaku on W20th, west of Wallace is looking good. Starting to get a little red eye, though.

    This city has planted in Balaclava Park, in honour of the VCBF 10th Anniversary, three 'Tai-haku', twelve 'Shirotae' (in three groups), seven 'Kanzan' (in two groups), and twelve 'Shiro-fugen' (in three groups). We could use photos for our map when they come into bloom in the spring. Here is the city's map of the location.

    Wendy Cutler showed me these 'must-see' 'Akebono' on West 19th Ave, east of Highbury. Bigger than three houses. Amazing.

    Stately 'Akebono' on Kullahun Drive, planted by Douglas Justice's father. Lots of room to spread, here.

    If you say so. Next post is 'Ukon', as you said. I would believe you about the flowers on the first one, but those 'Kanzan' flowers on the left are making me wonder what's going on. Were they on a different tree?

    'Shiro-fugen'. Pink buds turning white; bronze leaves. In two weeks, they will start to be pink flowers with green leaves.

    Thanks, yes, 'Ukon'. You already confirmed that the tree with the pink is a different tree.
    'Ama-no-gawa'.
