    Shirofugens are one of the last cherries to bloom, and they last a long time, as much as a month, the blossoms changing their appearance dramatically from when they open in early May. By the end of May, they're look very curious, with little leaves growing out of the centres.

    Some Shirofugen locations from 2009 not mentioned last year:

    Downtown: 401 West Georgia: Homer Street entrance
    [Edited 2011oct03 by wcutler] Also Downtown, on Milross at Quebec, several young 'Shirofugen', see photos.
    And across from Burrard Station on Melville, three good-looking trees, probably the first in the city to open. See photos.
    Ten trees on Georgia west of Bute, north side, in a small courtyard that passes thru to the lane (properly belong in this Downtown neighbourhood), see photos here.

    Kensington-Cedar Cottage: two nice Shirofugens in front of the Church on 32nd at Beatrice
    Kensington-Cedar Cottage: interesting tree at Windsor and E. 31
    Victoria & 26th, in Brewers Park, a 2009 Festival Favourite, see photos
    Kensington-Cedar Cottage: Mountainview Cemetery, 41st & Prince Edward, twelve shirofugens

    Kerrisdale: 3 Shirofugens in the yard of Kerrisdale Community Center(Yew & 43)and Also on 46th between E Blvd & Maple

    Richmond: Gilbert & Elmbridge, ten trees each side of the street
    Richmond: Dorchester Circle (7291-7 Moffatt Road), seven trees
    [Edited 2011oct03 by wcutler] Also Richmond, three trees in the parking lot of King Buffet Restaurant on No 3 Road (near Leslie), photos. And eight trees in the Canadian Tire parking lot, also No 3 Road, up about 11 blocks, at Capstan Way, see photos.
    There are two map entries at Minoru Park, with no forum postings.

    Victoria-Fraserview, 3 trees on Fleming St., 49-51 Ave (photos). And five old trees on the block of 48th east of Victoria, see photos.

    Burnaby: About 20 Shirofugens at SFU, across from Strand Hall next to Academic Quadrangle [edited 2011nov6 by wcutler]: the neighbourhood for these on the festival map is called "SFU" to allow for a later blooming date than the rest of Burnaby.

    Found a few more Shirofugens that were posted:

    Kerrisdale: Kerrisdale Community Centre, 43rd and Yew, 42nd-44th and Yew, and 46th, East Blvd to Maple

    Kitsilano, Burrard & Cypress, south end of the Burrard Bridge, one nice tree. [Edited 2011oct03 by wcutler] And one tree at 1st and yew, see photos.
    8th, east of Arbutus, two 'Shirofugen' and one 'Shogetsu'. See photos.

    South Cambie: Willow, north of 41st
    [Edited 2011oct03 by wcutler] Also South Cambie, on 16th, south side, east from Oak St, several trees in front of an apartment building, see photos. Same posting, also on 16th, at Ash, trees on both streets in front of an apartment building, see photos.
    The Cambie median has several trees at 25th and 26th. They're mentioned in this inventory, but no photos. There are a lot of 'Shirofugen' on other blocks of the median farther south, see Oakridge and Marpole.

    Not a timely posting. 'Shirofugen' locations from 2010/2011 postings, not listed here yet.

    Dunbar-Southlands: fourteen 'Shirofugen' on the block of 24th west of Highbury have been a festival favourite. See photos.

    Grandview-Woodland: Grove of fifteen Shirofugens at the southeast corner Adanac and Salisbury (parkette), see photos.

    Killarney: one 'Shirofugen' in a line of 'Ichiyo' - surely a mistake, see posting

    Marpole: Several 'Shirofugen' on the Cambie median below 57th have been a festival favourite location, see photos..

    Mount Pleasant: five 'Shirofugen' on 4th Ave east of Quebec, north side. See photos.
    Also at 2nd and Prince Edward, two trees on the corner, with an avium in between. See photos.

    New Westminster: two young trees at the main entrance to Douglas College on 8th Avenue just south of Royal Ave, photo.

    Riley Park: tree reported with blossoms in mid-July, 2011, on 37th near the QE golf course fence east of Manitoba. See blossom photos, and photos of the tree from 2010.
    Also, four trees on St George, 28th to 29th, see photos
    30th east of Walden,
    photos
    41st west of Fraser, twelve trees in the cemetery, see photos


    Shaughnessy: one new tree at VanDusen, see photos.
    W. 26th, Osler to Selkirk was a 2007 festival favourite, but it has not been reported on the forums

    And on West Mall just south of Bio-Sciences Road, photos. The same posting shows two 'Shirofugen' (only one looks really nice) along Marine Drive at Marine Towers.
    There's a map entry for one tree next to 'Amanogawa' at University and Main Mall. There doesn't seem to be a forum mention of this.

    West Point Grey: two trees at Jericho Beach and four at Spanish Banks concession stand, see photos. I'm not sure if these two west of the Jericho Sailing Club are the same location or not, see photos.
    On Belleview east of Belmont, on a street with several other cultivars, is one 'Shirofugen', see photos (last ones in the posting).
    On 7th between Trimble and Sasamat is one 'Shirofugen' on a street with 10 'Ukon', see photos.

    >Shirofugen's<

    Note apostrophe should be removed. And really 'Shirofugen' (including single quotes) should be used to indicate both multiple and individual specimens, as in "Here's a list of the house numbers for all the 'Shirofugen' on 5th Avenue" as well as "Look at that big 'Shirofugen'!"

    Okay, I know, I just wasn't changing the original postings. I've changed this one, have left your comments, which are helpful, and I'll change the plurals in at least some of the postings I'm editing.

    Thanks, Ron.
