Re: Oakridge-Takasago? I found one Takasago like tree at 187 West 48 Ave.. Most of the flowers are fresh and beautiful. I found the other two trees at 263 & 388 West 48 Ave. between Cambie & Columbia St. on April 11. Most of our Takasago are withered, but not these three. Most of them have 15 petals, some of them have one phylloid pistil, no hair on pedicles and no hair on the slight bronze-green leaves. They do have most of the features of Takasago, eg. tree trunks and branches with lichens, most of the corymbs of 4 pink flowers arranged whorlly on branches, dark pink buds, 4 cm in diameter, 1 cm peduncle, 2.2 cm pedicel, no serration, and almost green sepals.
