I'm putting this location on my list for next year. Beautiful double row of 'Somei-yoshino'.
Some trees not yet on the map:
Malvern north from Imperial, 'Shiro-fugen'
Morley from Malvern, 'Shiro-fugen'
Leibly from Morley, 'Shiro-fugen'
School on Morley near Malvern, 'Kanzan'
On Malvern mid-block between Burris and Stanley, this beautiful tree that I think is 'Sendai-shidare'. I hope to remember to see it next year.
Speaking of what needs to be seen next year, here are two beautiful trees that bloomed mid-season. They seem to be the same cultivar, and I'm guessing 'Tai-haku' and not 'Shirotae' because of their size. They are both on the same block of Malvern as the one above that needs to be seen next year. They have very large leaves, around 19cm long.
Wendy Cutler spotted this playground with 'Kanzan' at the UniverCity Child Care up at SFU Burnaby today. Nice to see some buds and copper-colored leaves.
At the SFU Quad south of Strand Hall - 'Shiro-fugen' grove.
'Kanzan' at SFU Quad, too.
3+4 Shirofugen are still in bloom at Willingdon Ave. & Goard Way
2 Shirofugen at Horward Ave. & Hastings.
Whitcomb cherry trees are now in full bloom at Ayshire Drive in Burnaby North. Visit within 7 days to capture the beauty of the flowers.

These old Akebono are still blooming nicely.
An unknown person put a marker on our Neighbourhood Map for Southwood west of Joffre. I wasn't even aware of that, was just driving through that area yesterday and found lots of great streets of 'Akebono' trees. These were the ones posted, on Southwood and Joffre.
The 'Akebono' on Joffre go all the way to Marine Drive. These are at Clinton, and the last one is south of that.
These are on Greenall, the next street east. The last photo is looking north from Southwood.
Several blocks east at McKay and Southwood is another group of 'Akebono'.
These are for the map, so someone will visit and photograph them in bloom. Kanzan, on Portland west from Joffre.

Akebono photographed on Watling at Gray, around the corner from those pictured above. There are numerous plantings of Akebono on residential streets south of Metrotown, South Burnaby.
Judith Anderson has been keeping an eye for me on these trees. The first one does look like it's 'Tai-haku'. I hope to see them both in two days, probably in the rain.
Wrong - good photo, Wendy, hairs on pedicels easily visible, rules out 'Sendai-shidare', so 'Snofozam', since we don't have info on any other small weeping white like this.
We're stalking the 'Tai-haku' on the same street, so I expect we will get better photos than these, but as long as we're here, here is my favourite, at 6028, just starting to really open two days ago.
The other tree that interested me on the block, at 6085, is also 'Tai-haku' and was much closer to fully open.
Looking forward to seeing those old 'Tai-haku' in full bloom !
It's getting there. Judith sent along a photo from yesterday, in the rain.
Stumbled across a dozen trees in full bloom on Chesham Ave between Burke St. and Bond St. One is quite large and even though I identified them all as Akebono, that big one could be different.
Shirotae at 6500 Bonsor Ave at Central.
