Thanks, Janice, and thanks to Emily and Tony for such good photos.
It looks like I'm going to have to make a pronouncement here. It won't be the first time I've named something wrong, so sure, I'll do this. I think that it's 'Snofozam' [edited: I thought I was agreeing with Janice, but she says not], and I just have to change my idea of what these can look like. They've been around since 1985, and I guess 36 years is enough time for a Prunus avium rootstock to get this hefty. I am deciding this mostly on the calyces, of which hardly any have the round urceolate shape (like an urn, with a bulge and then a rather tight constriction) that many of the calyces on ito-zakura have. Also, the branches are stiff and straight. It seems that both ito-zakura and 'Snofozam' can have serrations on the sepals.
Here's another thing: Kuitert, Wybe, in Japanese Flowering Cherries (Timber Press, Portland, OR, 1999, p. 169) says for ito-zakura
We don't have mature leaves, but these leaf tips seem more pronounced than small. But we do have glands, we don't have hairs on the leaf undersides, and the stipules are more like 20 to 2.5mm. So that's three strikes against ito-zakura.
Too bad 'Snofozam' isn't included in Kuitert's book. For now, that's what it is.
I have copied the postings about the 'Snofozam' to Identification: - Snofozam - delicate single white weeping, mid-season. If there are more discussions about the ID, please post them there.
Akebono after sunset in north Burnaby on 4/12. So stunning.
After dinner , Sunny Chen walked along Charles street from Fell ave. to Holdom Ave. and took some photos from the highest point on Dunlop st.& Chaarles .
More photos to enjoy. Same location as the above photos.
Hi Janice, they are amazing sunset photos, do you mind if I save and print one out to keep. I will not share it anywhere, but show it to my eldest granddaughter who just loves sunsets.
Hi,Acerholic: Sunny is very happy to share the photos with you. Let me know which one you like and how to sent you the higher resolution photos to print out.
A beautiful Shirotae tree at 9674 Casewell st. on 4/14. Photos taken by Sunny Chen.
Beautiful photos Janice, you are going to have to chose one of them for you profile photo. But which one?? as they are all lovely.
The three Tai-haku trees along Central Park's southern boundary (NW corner of Imperial and Patterson) are in full bloom at April 15, 2021, watched by a Ukon just starting.
Ukon in Burnaby's Central Park corner opening at April 15, 2021.
Kitty corner to Central Park, at the SE corner of Patterson and Imperial, is this Shirotae, which is right next to a white Star Magnolia, making flower separation sometimes difficult at April 15, 2021.
Ah yes, the number of blocks I've walked for a 'Shirotae' off in the distance, only to find it was a star magnolia.
Two shirotae tress are in blooming on 2021/04/15. Located around 6188 Patterson. There is a small pavalion in the public area. photo taken by Sunny Chen.
Here comes the late blooming cherry tree- Ama-no-gawa. Though it only has a few flowers ,but it's too early, isn't it? It is located on 6919 union street.
Not too early compare to other locations where these are fully in bloom. Several late-season cultivars are open now.
Judith Anderson has sent along this year's version of this awesome 'Tai-haku', photo taken today. Last year's photo was taken on April 10. It looks much more full this year.
This Cherry has just been ID'd by Wendy from my location. Thousands of miles apart, but we look at the same trees. Isn't it great!!
I think Awesome might even be an understatement Wendy.
A huge Yae-beni-shidare located in 1250 Dunlop Ave, in full bloom. Very bright pink with the blue sky. Photos taken by Sunny Chen on 4/16.
Another Yae-beni-shidare located at 986 Duthie Ave. Photos taken by Sunny Chen on 4/16.
Judith has sent along four photos taken by her husband, Randall Peterman. The rounder tree is the less-huge 'Tai-haku' at a few doors down and across the street.
'Pink Perfection' is approaching perfection on east side of Patterson (north Mayberry, across from Central Park) at April 18, 2021.
These are the Shirotae trees at their peak that Sunny Chen did on Post #413 three days ago, Thursday, April 15, 2021.
They are now at the morning of April 18, and already the centres are starting to turn their red eyes. These Shirotae trees are actually on the same grounds as the Pink Perfection trees. A friend reported Pink Perfection was still in buds on Friday. Two days later–Sunday, April 18, blooms galore.
So that's why Sunny missed Pink Perfection when she took the photos of Shirotae, because in blooming, as in life, timing is everything.
Two Ichiyo trees around 3752 Canada way in full bloom. Photos taken by Sunny Chen on 04/17.
There is one pink perfection was spotted by Sunny Chen on 3420 Bell ave. It is starting to bloom.
