@Ron B, thanks for the comment. I've set a reminder to try to go visit that tree.
Who ever thought I'd be posting an 'Okame' tree in this thread, but this one posted by @Willard in the Sunshine Coast / Gulf Islands thread looks beautiful.
Do these ones count?...
They are around a square next to the primary school my kids attended. They're obviously grafted so I thought they might be a kind of cultivar, but the flowers look like P. pissardii. I took a close-up of the flowers, but when I got home I saw the photo was blurred. There are so many around at the moment, maybe they grafted them high so they could have a straight trunk and "look like real trees", most of the P. pissardii around have several trunks starting from low down.
This other one is probably more what fits in this thread. It's a beautiful weeping Prunus that I've admired for years. I hope that when they pull down the building they'll save the tree. I went to a plant fair this afternoon, many of the professionals there had "kojo no mai'. The flowers are white, but very similar in shape to this one :
And not "a tree" (yet), but this Prunus 'Accolade' is from a root cutting :
The 'Beni-shidare' counts. The plum and wisps of cherries are not quite what I'm after in this thread. :)
I thought there was a thread somewhere for Not-in-Vancouver cherries, but I can't find it. You're welcome to do a thread to show off Cherries in France under (1) Ornamental Cherries | UBC Botanical Garden Forums.
Thanks for the name, I didn't know what it was.
OK, I'll do that, thanks for the suggestion.
