    "These are from yesterday, March 30, 2008, planted around the Angus Corporate Park next to the Fraser River Park, 1700-1750 West 75th, below Marine Drive. It is a small group of buildings, with a planting of ACCOLADES, tucked out of most of the wind and inclement weather, and in full bloom! Absolutely beautiful, young trees. You can park at Fraser River Park, which is a small park at the Fraser River, with tugboats and mergansers and other interesting ducks, blackbirds trilling, and this little posey of trees around this small complex of buildings."

    This sounds like a lovely spot.

    Hi, Neighbours!
    West 50th & Marine Crescent are really Beautiful now! (as many People wrote!)
    And also I think they are one of the most interesting spots in Vancouver now.
    Accolades are chosen Festival Favorites site, but you can see many other cherries there.

    On Marine Crecent, there is a whitcomb as Joseph Lin wrote (almost finishing now). There are 2 kinds of purple-leaved Plum trees and 1 white plum( almost finishing) . Somei-Yoshino trees are blooming beautifully between 50th and Marine Dr.

    On West 50th Ave. Accolades are blooming beautifully and several young Akebono trees started to bloom and there are 3 cherry trees which I 'm not sure. And at the garden of one house we can see 2 Pendula trees are nearly blooming!
    There are 2 wild cherry trees near MacDonald Street.
    Marine Crescent on April 2. 20080402_MarineCres_Izaki 015.JPG
    (Somei-yoshino & Plums)
    Somei-Yoshino has gentle pink flowers which always have 5 petals.
    Yesterday when I took walk with Wendy from Burrard Station, I couldn't say difference between Somei-yoshino and Akebono. But now I found a difference besides the staminode.
    When you see them close-up, you can see yellowy star shapes in the flowers.
    (Akebono has smaller stars) Also Akebono has bigger and rounder petals.

    Wild cherry tree 20080405_Izaki 064A.JPG
    (They are not blooming yet. Flowers on this photo are Accolades)

    Cherry Trees which I'm not sure
    Their flowers are a bit smaller than Somei-Yoshino or Akebono.
    They always have 5 petals and bloom less flowers on the tree.

    Nice Prunus pendula 'Beni-shidare' at 54th and West Boulevard. It's all one tree - the trunk to the left is something else. Maybe 50% out April 7.

    These are the Akebonos in Maple Grove Park, Marine Dr and Yew, that Douglas mentioned in his April 11 Blog.

    Balsam Street south from 41st has a fabulous row of Tai Haku but also find Washi-no-o or "eagles tail" cherry at 47th and near 45th. The single white blossoms are very fragrant. You may think Yoshino until the noticing the scent; think baby powder.
    0n 45th near Larch, Takasago is blooming, perhaps not in the most robust health but hanging in there.
    [edited by wcutler 20090724: we're calling this one Edo-zakura. See the Edo-zakura thread in Cultivar IDs. [edited by wcutler 20140419]: now it's 'Yokihi'. Same tree, third name.

    Re: Ukon - Kerrisdale - Churchill, West 47th to 49th

    The double row if mature Ukon cherries along Churchill from 47th to 49th are just opening. The blossoms have a distinctive pale yellow/green colour especially when contrasted with a white blossom.

    Re: *POSTED - Accolade - Kerrisdale, West 50th, Marine Cr to MacDonald

    Accolades finished, But-----
    Posted on April 21

    Accolade on 50th finally became not worth viewing.
    Until last week there were a few trees still blooming. They continued to bloom more than a month! Still you can see some flowers blooming now. It's amazing!

    20080420_50th&MarineCr_Accodale_Izaki 001.jpg 20080420_50th&MarineCr_Accodale_Izaki 010.jpg

    But there are some other cherries worth viewing on 50th.
    There is 1 Washi-no-o. It is at the late stage of blooming and center of the flowers getting pink.

    There is one Avium Plena.(one more in the garden)
    They are wild trees and very big and free shape!

    20080420_50th&MarineCr_AviumPlena_Izaki 011.jpg

    And at the garden of one house we can see 2 Yae-beni-shidare and 1 Ukon.

    50th & Marine Crescent
    Posted on April 21

    Accodales on 50th and Somei-Yoshino on Marine Crescent finished and Akebonos are nearly fisnishing now. But there are still some cherries to see on 50th.
    There are 2 Avium Plena.(one in the garden with ivy)
    They are full bloom now!
    They grew up wild and very big, so their shape are not like cherry at all(for me)!

    20080421_50th&MarineCr_Izaki 008.jpg 20080421_50th&MarineCr_AviumPlena_Izaki 011.jpg 20080417_MarineCr&50th_AviumPlena_Izaki 006.jpg

    There is 1 Washi-no-o. It is at the late stage of blooming now.
    Center of the flowers are getting pink.

    April 21

    April 13
    (Basically Washi-no-o has a bigger flowers than Somei-Yoshino but some are relatively small)
    20080413_50th&Marine Cr_Washi-no-o._Izaki 023.JPG 20080419_Washi-no-o._Izaki 003.jpg

    The weeping trees in a garden turned out to be Yae-beni-shidare.
    Also 1 Ukon is blooming now at the same garden.

    20080421_50th&MarineCr_Yae-beni-shidare_Izaki 002.jpg 20080421_50th&MarineCr_Yae-beni-shidare_Izaki 003.jpg 20080421_50th&MarineCr_Ukon_Izaki 007.jpg


    Also the question tree I posted about 2 weeks ago turned out to be Pandora.
    They have Goblet shapes and small flowers with 5 petals.
    Douglas said that Pandora was the most ugly cherry.
    But I think it's because of grafting.

    Re: Ukon - Kerrisdale - Churchill, West 47th to 49th

    Appears that lots of progress has been made in the last 4 days. Should be a good showing on the weekend.

    46th & W. BLVD and E BLVD
    Poste on April 30

    There are rows of Sirofugen on 46th Ave. between E.BLVD and Maple St.
    They have just started to bloom!
    I think Flowers here are bigger and you can see phylloid Styles which really looks like elephant noses. ( 'Shiro-' means white and 'Fugen' means Fugen-Bosatsu, one of Gods of Buddism which rides on an elephant.)

    20080430_46thE.BLVD_Shirofugen_Izaki 001.jpg 20080430_46th&E.BLVD_Shirofugen_Izaki 009.jpg 20080430_46th&E.BLVD_Shirofugen_Izaki 010.jpg

    The other side of the Rail track, you can see Kanzan and Avium tree at the corner of W.BLVD and 46th.
    But if you cross the track and go to W.BLVD, you'll know there are one Kanzan tree and one Avium-Kanzan tree only. This Avium-Kanzan tree has only one branch of Kanzan and all other parts are Avium. Total Failure of Grafting!

    Also you can see one small miserable Kiku-Shidare-Zakura in the garden of the north-side house on 46th between E.BLVD and Maple St. (Shirofugen side)

    I normally would ask people not to insult someone's beloved tree, but this one has clearly been neglected right from the start - Mariko, it's another grafting failure example that you're specializing in lately <grin>. That stuff at the top is from the rootstock. The Kiku Shidare Zakura at my apartment building started to do that last year, but we cut those shoots off and no new ones showed up this year.

    Now almost all the cherries have finished! It's a season for Rhododendrons, Dogwoods and Laburnams.
    The last Cherries blooming in Kerrisdale are Shiro-fugens in the garden of Kerrisdale community Centre near the cornor of Yew and 43rd.(pictued on May 20)

    20080520_Yew&42nd_Shirofugen_Izaki 007.jpg 20080520_Yew&42nd_Shirofugen_Izaki 008.jpg 20080520_Yew&42nd_Shirofugen_Izaki 005.jpg

    But now they are not Shiro-fugen anymore but like Aka- fugen! (Shiro means white and Aka means red in Japnese) I also noticed when flowers finish most of them fall not by petals but flowers with pedicels.
    20080520_Yew&42nd_Shirofugen_Izaki 003.jpg

    I think it's interesting that they locate next to Autamnalis which bloomed first in Feburary at the biginning of the Cherry season.

    They were not like this on May 11.
    There are young shirofugen trees around the parking lots at the corner of Yew and 42nd.

    20080511_43rd&Yew_Shirofugen_Izaki 006A.JPG 20080511_42&Yew_Shirofugen_Izaki 010A.JPG 20080511_42&Yew_Shirofugen_Izaki 009A.JPG

    Shirofugen on 46th & East BLVD are a little quicker than Yew & 43rd. (May 20)

    20080520_46th&EastBLVD_Shirofugen_Izaki 001.jpg 20080520_46th&EastBLVD_Shirofugen_Izaki 002.jpg 20080520_46th&EastBLVD_Shirofugen_Izaki 003.jpg

    They were whiter on May11 (already not very white, rather pink!),too.

    Re: Kerrisdale-Autumn Colours

    Autumn Colours on 50th& Marine Crescent

    Autumn colours have started on 50th & Marine Crescent area. Pandoras Show beautiful red leaves. Ukon has changed into red, too. Somei Yoshinos started changing colours.

    2008.10.21.MarinClecent&50th.Pandra.Izaki 002.JPG 2008.10.21.MarinClecent&50th.Pandra&Ukon 001.JPG 2008.10.21.MarinClecent&50th.SomeiYoshino.Izaki 006.JPG

    Young Akebono also changed colours. But Accolades (the tree behind Akebono) and Whitcomb haven’t changed so much. (at least until October 22, when I took pictures.) Order of blooming and order of changing colours are very different.

    Accolades - Kerrisdale, Yew St. from West 43 to 46 Ave

    These Prunus 'Accolade' trees on Yew St from West 43rd to 46th Ave are probably showing just a few blossoms so far.
    08-AccoladeYew.gif

    The full description from our book (that would be Douglas Justice's book) is Prunus 'Accolade' (P. sargentii x P. x subhirtella).

    Re: Accolades - Kerrisdale, Yew St. from West 43 to 46 Ave

    Just a thought, I used to live on this very street actually at Balsam, and I have noticed that the Prunus trees are always sickly looking, and usually affected by blight fungus or insects. Do you think the city horticulturist would take notice and fertilise, spray lime and sulphur or treat these trees? Just a thought.

    Re: Accolades - Kerrisdale, Yew St. from West 43 to 46 Ave

    I think the biggest problem for those sick Accolade and Autumnalis on Yew Street is the climate of Vancouver. It is too cold (too wet, too?) for those trees. (Young Akebonos and Shirofugens there are all right.) When I see those trees in summer, I feel sorry for them. Leaves are too small to get enough energy from sunlight. So I think to fertilize might help the trees if fertilize properly.

    I don’t know anything about spraying lime and sulphur, but I think wrapping the trunk in winter is very good way to prevent insects. To wrap every cherry trees are too much work for city, but I think some of the cherry scouts and the volunteers of the Botanical gardens might help them a bit.

    Re: Kerrisdale - FIRST POSTING OF 2009

    First posting in 2009

    Only 1 Whitcomb on Marine Crescent near 50th is blooming now.
    Unfortunately it has miserable shape.
    20090330_MarinCr&50th_Whitcomb&Accolade&etc_Izaki 008.jpg 20090330_MarinCr&50th_Whitcomb&Accolade&etc_Izaki 010.jpg
    3 Accolades on the other side of crescent near 49th have just started to bloom.
    They are 10 days behind of ones on Yew Street.
    20090330_MarinCr&50th_Accolade&etc_Izaki 001.JPG 20090330_MarinCr&50th_Accolade&etc_Izaki 002.JPG


    Accolades on 50th are at the same stage of blooming.

    Young Akebonos around there will take a little time to bloom.

    Somei-Yoshinos on Marine Cr. near Marine Dr. are a bit ahead than Akebonos.
    Bud scales have already opened and we can see bunch of flower buds.

    Beni-shidare - Kerrisdale, West Blvd and 54th

    This is on the favourites list as Yae-beni-shidare, but sorry, it's just Prunus pendula 'Beni-shidare', as the blossoms are single. It's a beautiful tree with lots of space around it.

    A block farther south, there's a private Accolade spilling over a hedge. And nearby on Arbutus just south of 51st, there is a very good-looking row of private upright trees with single pinky-white blossoms.

    This is such a beautiful private planting easily seen from Arbutus just south of 51st. Four or five nicely shaped gently spreading upright trees along the front of the yard, I think not grafted, covered with pinky-white blossoms. Pandoras?? They seem too pretty.
    [edited 2009apr16 by wcutler:] Douglas says they're Pandoras, in this Cultivar IDs thread.
