    Killarney's four Okame trees on the north side of E. 58, about two blocks east of Kerr, are looking splendid on March 19, 2013. Not at all like "homely, comical women" if that is what Okame means in Japanese.

    Anne must have set a personal mission to get every neighbourhood thread activated for 2013!

    I'm finding it interesting that the 'Okame' seem to bloom at the same time everywhere. Too bad we don't have any in the West End to confirm that.

    Yama-zakura is in full bloom at Killarney Park (Raleigh/E.47) on April 13, 2013. Note the recurved sepals clearly showing on the flowers.

    The second row of photos are of the Yama-zakura at VanDusen (posted in Shaughnessy here: http://www.botanicalgarden.ubc.ca/forums/showpost.php?p=310192&postcount=75 ) which show the same recurved sepals, like those of Prunus avium in the last picture taken from the P. avium trees lining E. 47, west of Raleigh.

    There are two trees on the west side of Rupert Street north of Rosemont Drive, the one closer to Rosemont is younger. They are not blooming yet, I think they are Accolades.

    The Rupert one looks like 'Akebono' to me. Count the petals. Most of the 'Akebono' flowers have five petals, with some of them having an extra half-petal in the middle. Have another look and see what you think.

    Killarney Park is blooming out. In bloom, in the rain on March 20, 2015: the Yama-Sakura on Raleigh at where E47 would be, alongside the two Somei-Yoshino trees still in flower; and the row of Sargent Hybrid trees along E48, between Raleigh and Killarney streets.

    At Killarney Park's northern border, Takasago is in bloom on E. 46 at Raleigh, March 20, 2015.

    Two dwarf Sargent Hybrids are also on the Takasago-lined street.

    The two young Shirotae trees on Vivian Drive just north of Brightwood Place are blooming. The Ichiyos on the same block are not quite ready yet.

    Going north on Vivian, at the northwest corner of E. 54th and Vivian are three Akebonos that are blooming out.

    The Ito-Kukuri on the south side of E. 54th near Wales has a single flower, it may be ready in another week or two? I made the mistake of taking only one photo of the tree and it turned out to be very blurry so I am not attaching the photo.

    The five Akebonos on E. 56th Ave from Rupert to Kerr are just going past their prime on March 23.

    And the two trees I found early on Rupert Street north of Rosemont are indeed Akebonos, they are also blooming out.

    The map indicated there are seven Akebonos on the southwest corner of Rosemont Drive and Kerr Street, but there is a temporary firehall there now and no trees. The trees are probably further east on Rosemont Drive (east of Kerr, near or past Kopernik Lodge). It started to rain and hail, I was on foot with no umbrella so I just zoomed in for a photo and didn't walk over for a closer look. The original photo post on this thread seems to show the trees just outside the Kopernik Lodge.

    Thanks, Tao. I have moved the marker east of Kopernik Lodge. It's useful to get checks on the marker locations, particularly old ones like that, since I had to place some of them from just reading reports, even before I could check the locations on Google earth view. The markers are better now that you scouts are placing your own markers.

    Ito-kukuri in bloom on the south side of E. 54th, just west of Wales, on March 26, 2015.

    The last photo shows the the blossoms "so crowded as to appear tied together" (Ito-kukuri, "bundled with thread").

    In the lovely park beside Killarney Secondary at Raleigh and 47th, the elegant Yama-zakura is still covered in blossoms. This area is a cherry spotter's treasure trove as there are many cultivars in the neighbourhood.

    The 'Takasago' trees on Vivian Drive from E.49th Ave to E. 51st Ave were in full bloom on April 1. I didn't check the map until now, the map says there should be eight trees, one of them north of E. 49th Ave. However, I counted only five trees and I did not notice any 'Takasago' north of E. 49th (only 'Kanzan' trees). There are four trees on the east sidewalk, two of them between E. 49th and E. 50th, one just south of E. 50th, and one in the middle of the block between E. 50th and E. 51st. The tree on the west sidewalk is to the south of E. 50th Ave.

    Thanks, Tao. I've changed the description on the map, and changed the links to go to your posting with the more current information.
