[Edited by wcutler on April 6, 2009] Last year I wrote: "Akebonos on Grant McConachie Way to the Vancouver Airport should be out late March. The Kanzans should appear mid April". This year, the location is again a Festival Favourite, and that statement is so not true, or at least the Akebono story is not true. I don't know if Richmond is warmer or cooler than Vancouver, and no-one posted a photo of this location in full bloom last year to give any idea to judge by. Maybe those two cultivars will be out at the same time, since the later trees (Kanzans) are said to come out at their normal time, and the early ones are really late this year.
