    Everywhere you look, Kanzan.
    This double row on 27th, west of Lillooet.
    And they were in peak bloom April 27.

    @Willard and @Nadia White Rock already posted photos from 27th and Lillooet, and from 24th and Lillooet. Here's a photo from 27th on Lillooet, showing the open view of the row of 'Kanzan' at 24th.

    And a snowy lions photo from 27th.
    20170502_27thLillooet_Kanzan_Cutler_153708.jpg

    The 'Shiro-fugen' trees on Earles at Vanness (actually on the corner of Kings) have barely opened yet. I'm surprised they're so slow to open here.

    I got dropped off today on 29th and Boundary, just a block from Cariboo Park, with three or so each of 'Ukon' and 'Kanzan' trees, not in a mass planting. It's a lovely park.

    This is the first of any photos from the VCBF 10th Anniversary plantings. 'Snow Goose' and 'Akebono' have finished blooming, and these 'Shiro-fugen' seem reluctant to start, though other 'Shiro-fugen' trees in this neighbourhood are equally late.
    20170502_SlocanPark-E29th_Cutler_155620.jpg 20170502_SlocanPark-E29th_VCBF-10thAnniversaryTrees_Cutler_160025.jpg
    I would be feeling insulted, as these do not look like great trees to me. The 'Snow Goose' are on Birch Bark Cherry rootstock, which I think looks bizarre. 'Snow Goose' seem widely available grafted low so that the trunk matches the tree. What's wrong with a tree having a matching trunk?
    20170502_SlocanPark-E29th_SnowGoose_Cutler_160124.jpg

    The 'Shiro-fugen' are grafted high; the rootstock growth off the trunk is already appearing, and the graft area looks pretty weak - the rootstock diameter is already larger than the scion. I don't understand that dark area on the trunk in the 2nd photo.
    20170502_SlocanPark-E29th_Shirofugen_Cutler_160156.jpg 20170502_SlocanPark-E29th_Shirofugen_Cutler_160356.jpg 20170502_SlocanPark-E29th_Shirofugen_Cutler_160410.jpg 20170502_SlocanPark-E29th_Shirofugen_Cutler_160314.jpg

    The 'Akebono' is also high-grafted, with the mismatched size of the trunk and scion apparent already and the branching all from the same place, and the rootstock growth already underway on the trunk.
    20170502_SlocanPark-E29th_Akebono_Cutler_160533.jpg

    It's one thing to have trees grafted high on city streets so that they branch above the parked cars and passing trucks. But in a park, wouldn't it be nice if the trees looked like real trees?
