    Akebonos in Melbourne Park on Vanness, not far from the Joyce Skytrain Station, should normally bloom at the end of March.

    Re: Akebono - Renfrew-Collingwood, Vanness Ave at Melbourne Park

    These have been in full bloom for a few days now, looking wonderful. This picture is from Sunday, I don't have any better at the moment.

    That's not all, though. Not all of them are akebonos. There are a few Shirotaes which are not yet in full bloom. And this morning on my way to work I noticed that at least one of the trees that I thought was a Shirotae, actually doesn't have double flowers (the other one next to it does). I added two pictures from my cellphone camera (I was going to work) to help identification, I'll replace them with better ones in the afternoon.

    Great. Thanks for the timely posting, Andrew. I think the white ones are Tai Haku - huge single blossoms, leaves emerging bronze-coloured?

    You're absolutely right, it is a Tai Haku. I couldn't get a good picture due to its location, I'll try another day.

    There are three Shirotaes in various stages of bloom (but none past full bloom) and one Tai Haku, as well as about twenty Akebonos that are a bit past their prime.

    Re: * POSTED - Kanzans - Renfrew-Collingwood, Rupert from E 12 to 29

    I took pictures of this area in the evening on May 1 for only my collections.
    (at 27th & Rupert)
    So pictures are not good.
    But there are fabulous raws of Kanzan with fantastic view of mountains.
    But there is no 12th Ave there. They finished at Grandview HWY.

    Clive Avenue - FIRST POSTING FOR 2009

    First posting in 2009
    I think these are Whitcombs. The branches were too high and the wind too strong to zoom in on a flower that wasn't moving. There are 13 of these trees on Clive Avenue, between Spencer and McHardy Streets, one block southwest of Joyce Station. Access is via Vanness Ave. It was gloomy weather ... photos taken wearing hat, scarf and gloves!

    There are five older Whitcombs on Manor Street between Queens and Wellington Avenues, only about 25% blossom out so far. In the next block, on Wellington from Manor to Reid Streets, several large cherries (not sure which cultivar) stretch across the street to form a canopy. This promises to be a splendid display, though no sign of any flowers yet.

    Edited by wcutler 2011dec30: Here's a google street view of the Manor 'Whitcomb' location.

    The huge Akebonos on Wellington at Reid are in bloom (about 50%), with staminode visible:

    One of the Washi-no-o trees at Nootka and E. 25 has blooms, which are already falling on April 13, 2009. The fallen flowers show the ragged "eagles tail" petal edges.

    Re: Washi-no-o - Renfrew-Collingwood, 25th and Nootka

    Here's the map for these Prunus Sato-zakura Group 'Washi-no-o'. The pushpin is the location of the favourites; there are more Washi-no-o trees at the other green marker.

    Wendy asked me to go get a pic of the cherries on Austrey between McHardy and Joyce Streets because they're on my way home from work, so here they are - they are clearly Akebonos, and clearly stunning:

    Re: Akebono - Renfrew-Collingwood, Austrey from McHardy to Joyce

    I'm trying to remember to give botanical names, so Prunus x yedoensis 'Akebono'. Here's the map.

    The Kanzans on 40th from Wales to Clarendon are only on one side, but they look very nice. I think it's Akebonos on the north side.
