There was an annual meeting of Japan Sakura Society on October 19, 2019 at Tamagawa Gakuen University in Kanagawa next to Tokyo Prefecture. There I met Mr. Ohara of Sakura handbook who is working for Toyama Botanical Garden. Now he is interested in cherries outside Japan. Before I gave him the booklet of "Ornamental Cherries in Vancouver". He asked me about Fukubana. I haven’t heard of it in Vancouver. He said Fukubana was widespread in Europe. He’d like to know it is well-known in North America or not. Mr.Fukuba introduced it to Europe but now it’s lost in Japan or just recently found again in Japan in other name. Dose anyone know Fukubana in Vancouver or in North America? Thank you.
