    In the preceding post, these all look like sweet cherries - Prunus Avium. The tell-tale sign is the sepals curling back so you don't see a star on the back on a lot of the flowers. And they're often big tall trees, except for young shoots, of course, but they're not grafted (unless they won out over what was grafted on top of their trunks) and they grow on tall main trunks. The flowers often form pompoms, but spread out more than on Akebonos.

    Not seeing the 'Ichiyo' flower shown here, maybe you are talking about the tree in the top left frame. Otherwise I think I am seeing 'Shogetsu'. If that's what the top right frame shows these are some pretty whopping examples.

    Re: No.49 Shrofugen & Ichiyo, Vivian St.by Fraserview Golf Course

    Well I really don't know enough about the use of the name 'Ichiyo' to comment, I expect plants so-called to look more like 'Temari'. The vigorous habit and amount of dark coloring in the newly opened flowers and leaves probably casts 'Shogetsu' in doubt. I'm not near any of my print references.

    These are small trees began blooming, and I wondered either Pink Perfection or Kanzan or maybe a mix. I tried very hard and found stamens with white vexillate filament on pics, still I'm not sure.

    Reported date: Apr 28,2008
    Location: the walls of SafeWay at the intersection of School Ave and Seniac St.
    Status: 30-50% blooming for seven trees

    20080428_School_SU_137_3792.jpg 20080428_School_Kanzan_SU_137_3794.jpg 20080428_School_Kanzan_SU_137_3795.jpg

    According to Ron B's description" Pink Perfection look like ice cream with their candy pink margins and white centers", they are not, so I guess all are Kanzan.

    We missed it before, but fortunately we captured some photos for Shirotae before it's gone.

    Today's last new findings, but the spectacular flowers are a perfect ending.

    Reported date: Apr 29,2008

    I happened to notice the flower which was not opened is with six sepals - quite unusal (on the first pic of 2nd line).

    I think the tree in the previous posting looks like Mikuruma-gaeshi, showing its late-flower colours, though I'm not sure I can tell you why, since the blossoms do look like the Ojochin blossoms in our booklet. But the shape is right for Mikuruma-gaeshi, the pink veining on the petals is right (nice photo of that); and the way the blossoms cluster around the trunk or branch like that is right for Mikuruma-gaeshi, and the Ojochin tree in the booklet doesn't look like its blossoms would do that. If Mikuruma-gaeshi, some of the blossoms could be Tai Haku size.

    * POSTED - 40 Avium Plena - Killarney, Kerr from 45th to 47th

    Avium plena trees line the west side of Kerr St from East 45th to 47th. These are a 2008 VCBf Festival Favourite. Mayling and Willy's photos show the trees open only about 20% on April 29, but they open quickly and should be more showy by this weekend.

    Re: No.49 Shirofugen - Killarney, Vivian St. by Fraserview Golf Course

    The single Shirofugen at the south end of the row of Ichiyos has started opening its beautiful white double flowers and coppery leaves.
    Between it and the Ichiyos is one Kanzan, bringing together 3 late-blooming double-flowered cherries in one great location.

    Re: Killarney Ukon Kerr/Rosemont

    By the Fraserview golf course on Kerr south of Rosemont we found a single fairly young Ukon.
    The yellow-green colour is distinctive against a white background, though not as pronounced as the ones in our
    Burnaby Central Park posting.

    Re: Killarney Takasago (6600 block Vivian)

    In the 6600 block of Vivian South of 50th are several Takasago, whose blossoms are developing a beautiful rich pink as they age, making an effect like hundreds of bright eyes looking down at you.

    Avium Plenas are getting whiter than one week ago on the Kerr Street. Maybe a few days it will turn to full blossom. Don't miss it!

    The Avium Plena are at their best, especially with unexpected blue sky in background.

    It sure looks like there are some vexillate filaments, or something like that on some of the flowers, but they have Kanzan leaf and flower colouring and I guess tree shape. And not enough vexillate filaments. So Kanzans do have filaments, and it seems some of them are vexillate; and for the filaments (above the anther), the thing we want someone to demonstrate is what we read in the Kuitert Japanese Flowering Cherries book: that the Kanzan filaments turn purplish red when the flowers are old and the stamens have turned slight pink.
