    First posting in 2008

    Willy and I were excited to find some different cherry trees blooming in Killarney, but we are not sure the names of clutivars, so please correct them for us. Thank you.
    What a beautiful weather and lucky day!

    A. Cherry Plum : trees are planted inside a private condo, so I could not capture the whole crown form, and flower part. However, the tree is strongly upright
    1. Location: E56th between Kerr and Rupert; five trees.
    2. Status: 90% open
    3. Date: Mar 24 2:30PM

    B. Autumnalis Rosea: Only one among plums at the same location
    [edited by wcutler - I think this is the one that Ron meant is Prunus Blireiana]:
    20080324_E56_AutumnalisRosea_M&SU_131_3144.JPG

    C. Four of them but still no flowers at the same location

    D. Okame: Trees with a rounded crown and flowers in corymbs of 3
    1. Location: at #3087 Rosemont Dr. a private residence.
    2. Status: Just started blooming
    [edited by wcutler - is this the right location? These are Prunus pendula, maybe Beni Shidare]

    E. Pendula: Looks not the same as Okame, but I'm not sure
    1. Location: at #7541 Kerr Street, a private residence.
    2. Status: sparse in flowers and higher branch

    The white one appears to be a cherry plum (Prunus cerasifera) rootstock that has likely replaced a grafted purpleleaf plum. In addition to this being a common use for cherry plum here you can also see that it grew up from below an original top by looking at the existing trunk and branches. The double pink one is also not a Japanese cherry but rather P. x blireiana, a purpleleaf plum cultivar.

    Killarney - Plums 49th to 54th and Vivian to Doman

    Not many cherries yet,but lots of plums in full bloom.
    This photo of 6700 block Raleigh shows mainly the pale pink Prunus cerasifera Atropurpurea,
    but in the distance you can see a few dark pink P. c. Nigra mixed in.

    Mayling & Willy,

    Try to differentiate Somei-yoshino and Akebono. Thanks.

    Somei-yoshino E. 56th and Kerr.

    Joseph,
    It's hard to differentiate before the flowers are open. The trees in Mayling's photo on East 56th near Kerr (and our update below) are ungrafted, which suggests they are Somei-yoshino. Can you suggest other ways to differentiate them from Akebono?

    Walking in the neighbourhood, we were surprised to find cherry trees because the color of trees attracted our attention! We were caught in a shower, but we felt excited to know a new cultivar in this area. Mayling & Willy

    1. Rancho Cherry - Please correct ID if we were wrong

    2. Somei-Yoshino and Akebono
    Location: Doman st. between E46 & E47 Ave
    Status: less than 20% - three Yoshinos on the east side-walk, two Akebonos on the west side-walk.

    Somei-Yoshino's witches-broom is obvious.

    I guessed it's Akebono because the trees are upward.

    You don't think #4 is Akebono? Whitcomb blossoms are pretty ratty looking when they get pale, and they're not that pale when they're opening, as some of those blossoms are. And isn't that a staminode in the upper left corner of the last of those four photos?

    Hi, Mayling. Wonderful photos! And well arranged!

    [7. ID needs your help. The crown form is vase shaped, but flowers alike Akebonos, and trees planted with Akebonos.

    I think this is Spire. It has a same shape as Rancho.
    Its Flowers always have 5 petals like Somei-Yoshino, but smaller.

    3. Akebono, but not sure because of flowers look different

    I think No3 & No6 aren't Akebono. And No6 is the same tree I found on W50th(near Marine Cresent) and reported in Kerrisdale Bloqs.
    No.3 looks the same tree, but I'm not sure.
    They have a bit smaller flowers than Somei-Yoshino.
    And we can't see as many flowers as Somei-Yoshino.
    Flowers of Somei-Yoshino covers the branches but Clusters of flowers of this tree are separate from each other, aren't they?
    I can't find this Cultivars in Douglas's Book!
    We have to ask him!!

    4. Akebono: well grown
    Location: Raleigh Street between 47 & 48th Ave
    Status: 90% blooming of two, sorry for this late reporting


    As far as I see your picture, I feel this might be Somei-Yoshino.
    I can't see any staminodes at all. I can see star shapes in the flowers.
    But I can't identify without seeing real tree.

    Thank you Mariko!

    I guess you are right for the mentioned items because those flowers are opening before neighbouring Akebonos. It's is hard to spot staminode flowers when they grow high. Is Somei-yoshino with direct trunk? We were confused sometimes, but we hope not to confuse readers.

    Killarney - Champlain Heights School Annex - late Akebono ?

    These 17 dainty flat-topped trees at the Champlain Heights School Annex (7835 Champlain Cr.) are finally 5% open. They look like Akebono cherries, but they're consistently 2 - 3 weeks later than Burrard station, and are one of our favourites.
    I apologize for the fuzzy closeup - the few open blossoms are high, but the sun wasn't.

    These are updated photos following a week from the Apr 2nd's postings. Most the ID are corrected because of notable extra staminodes of Akebonos. Mayling & Willy

    These are updated photos of Okame on the E58th Avenue. On Mar 24th we didn't know how to capture distant flowers with regret, so, it's lucky not too late today.

    Re: Killarney - Champlain Heights School Annex - late Akebono [peak]

    The Akebonos at Champlain Heights School Annex are at their peak bloom, and the sun even came out.

    Mayling and Willy, you guys have been busy! Such great postings. The Killarney and Vivian trees are Takasago. The E 46th single flowers look like Tai-Haku (the name means "big white"). Very large flowers? Quite white, bronze leaves.
