    Yes, looks like 'Whitcomb'. There is a lot of variation in the petal colours partly probably because of the sunshine but also, they fade to a very pale pink. They're looking good this year.

    A beautiful fully bloom cherry tree looks like 'Whitcomb', and it is located in Munday Place.

    Hello from Cherry Scout Deborah!

    I am able to contribute this year and was out today with camera in North Van looking for blossoms. I work downtown now and notice quite a difference between the the bloom times downtown vs. the North Shore. For instance I am waiting patiently for the 'Akebono' trees nearby in Lower Lonsdale with just a hint of pink bud action but the downtown ones near Burrard Skytrain are much more in bloom.

    I noticed that my beloved 'Beni-shidare' that I drive by here mid Lonsdale area are still in the dormant stage yet the Vandusen 'Beni-shidare' walk and talk has been moved up to next week.

    I plan on attending the scout orientation again and hope to see you there Susan (fellow N Shore scout) Wendy and others!

    Wendy asked me to post these photos. The tree is on East 12th Street, just off Grand Boulevard East.

    A small 'Kiku-shidare-zakura' tree is in full bloom, and the location is in a private front yard of north side of west 15th Street in between Pemberton Ave. and Philip Ave.

    It's amazingly good-looking for 'Kiku-shidare-zakura'.

    Indeed it is. I wonder if it might actually be something different. On the other hand, I don't see an obvious graft union. Perhaps it's been budded low on the stem (or on its own roots) and not infected with bacterial canker (note the 15th St. example with the obvious stem cankers, which is more typical). There is still plenty of die-back in the crown, but it has a density of branches, and plenty of ascending ones, not usually seen in the typically sparse, pendulous crown of 'Kiku-shidare-zakura'. Hmmm.

    Susan originally posted it saying she wasn't sure it was 'Kiku-shidare-zakura', but I must have replied to her via my notification and said it was, so she reworded the posting. I have copied this to Ornamental Cherries: 'Kiku-shidare-zakura'? Or something else?, to discuss the ID there.

    Petals just starting to fall.

    The Kanzan at 2420 Dollarton Highway are being filmed now for an episode of "The Zoo".

    I hope they don't destroy too many of them while they're doing the filming.
    I've moved the map marker to where Google maps says that address is and made it a favourite. If it's good enough for "The Zoo", it should be good enough for our photographers.

    I have just come across a City of North Vancouver map of its cherry trees, on page 31 of this PDF document:
    Street Tree Master Plan - City of North Vancouver

    Maybe North Van scouts would like to use this as a scouting guide. The trees are the green dots.

    The plan has a section with plans by neighbourhood. For Tempe Heights, an area that has been reported here, it says on page 55:
