yes, sure at least 2 different
Jon has come through with the photos, so we'll have two markers on the map for this group.
The ones on the inside are 'Shiro-fugen', and they have a lot of flowers remaining, with outstanding colour.
The ones on the outside, with very few flowers left, are almost certainly 'Kanzan', or at least one of them is. There were no flowers on the other outside ones, so there might be another cultivar, as Nadia suggests.
Lots of Akebono and Shirotae along MJM Furniture, 1315 United Blvd, Coquitlam
April 24, Shirotae in bloom
Akebono in full bloom
Many Akebono around Hard Rock Casino, Coquitlam
Snofozam at Egmont & Raynor.
Kanzan at Barnet & Mariner Way
Ingersoll Ave. east from Clark Rd
He Ying has put some markers on the festival map at Town Centre Park, does not want to do postings but has sent me photos. I have been convinced to post these photos, as we have so few postings from Coquitlam. I think these are all 'Akebono'. These are from the water spray park at Town Square Park.
From the middle roundabout at Percy Perry Stadium.
Here are more from He Ying at Town Square Park.
North End of the Park.
And Cunnings Field. I can't see these very well. I hope they are the same kind of trees.
Alyssa Farkas put a marker on the festival map for these two very nice-looking 'Akebono' cherry trees in a front yard on Walker Street. I assumed it was her front yard, but I see she doesn't say that. She had a link to her Instagram posting, where she included this:
And so the spring buds burst, and so I gaze,
And so the blossoms fall, and so my days … – Uejima Onitsura
Town Centre Akebono is in full bloom now! Also, three large...Shirotae(?) inside an apartment complex on 1199 Eastwood, about to come into bloom.
The row of Akebono at Runnel @ Lansdowne Dr is also in bloom now. And so is the other complex across from there—Creekside Village, with more than 12 blooming Akebono inside the parking lot (2773 Barnet Hwy).
2-3 beautiful large akebono in full bloom at burlington and the high.
Sherryl Swann sent this photo to the festival, of 'Akebono' at Como Lake.
Sherryl sent more photos of these lovely trees at Como Lake.
She also sent photos at Como Lake shopping village - Coquitlam, Linton and Como Lake Ave. And one at Linton and Grover (sign in the picture).
1) My previous post re 'shirotae' at 1199 Eastwood. Photo was taken last week so could possibly still be in bloom.
2) A colourful block of 'kanzan' and..sweet cherry(?) at Lansdowne and Steeple
3) An interestingly pruned 'kanzan' also on Lansdowne
4) Grove of 'akebono' at Coquitlam River Elementary from earlier this season, now over.
5) A small seating area with 'akebono' canopy at Ungless and Newport, from earlier this season.
6) Around 6 'kanzan' at the Sunwood Square plaza by Westwood parking lot entrance.
Was sent to take some photos of the possible 'Matsumae-beni-higoromo'. Here are some photos for discussion. There was a row of some...8 trees and only the highest 2 were in full bloom. Also sharing another tree at a private residence nearby.
Thanks, Carina. The first two photos look like 'Colt', and there is a trunk remaining from a tree that was cut down, so that looks like it is probably the rootstock from that tree.
The two trees in bloom look the same from the tree photo, but the first and second blossom photos from them look like 'Accolade' and the last blossom photo looks like 'Whitcomb'. There used to be a location near me that had one of each of those, and it took me a while to figure out they were two different cultivars, so maybe it is one of each. The 'Matsumae-beni-higoromo' are the ones not open yet. You can see in posting #15 how frilly the petal edges are.
I'm a bit rusty after being away for 5 years but I think KXD is right about the Akebono at the carpark - junction Barnet Hwy and Lansdowne Dr. Will try to add pin to the map after this and find my camera for better pictures (hopefully soon)
There's also huge Akebono at the junction of The High Street and Burlington Dr, but my phone camera can't zoom in to give a clear picture
If you walk along Hoy Creek Trail, near the Hatchery but slightly to the North, you'll see some beautiful trees in a private estate too.
Added a picture. I went back and pretty certain it's Akebono now :)
This Ukon is starting to bloom.
I believe they are Kanzan or Yae-beni-shidare (drooping tree?), just starting to bloom, quite small in size currently. Along Runnel Dr, at the side of a carpark.
East of the row of cherry trees next to the carpark, also along Runnel Dr but the address of the plot of land is somehow attached to Barnet Hwy.
These are unfortunately done for the season. There are small bunches along the tree trunk (in the photo), though I'm not sure if the top was grafted on these trunks, and thus the bunches pictured are of a different variety.
Maybe the last one right at the traffic junction that still has some flowers is the frilly one? It's kind of hard to get to as it's right at the junction and cars may turn, so I gave it a miss.
