Yes, I only counted five Takasogo trees on Vivian Drive, in full bloom on April 7, 2016.
'Kanzan' arch on 42nd at Earles.
Magnificent Avium, but I don't think they are 'Plena'. Flowers are not double. And the trees are not as weepy as 'Plena'.
Five young 'Shiro-fugen' on Killarney north of 46th. Planted in 2012.
'Kanzan' on Doman St at 47th. Trees on 47th, and on Doman.
'Akebono' trees (I think - I couldn't find a staminode) in front of Killarney Community Centre:
Pendula 'Beni shidare' in front of a private residence on the west side of Kerr near 58th (just north of the golf course):
Here is one 'Accolade' on Blake St. east of Champlain Crescent at Garibaldi Drive, north side of the street. I'm not sure what you call this type of pruning, which I now notice is a thing, as it was done on my favourite 'Tai-haku'. Is there a name for that styling? The flowers were so pink that I thought it might be something else.
There is also a later blooming tree next to it.
Avium Plena's pleasing plenitude in Killarney: the other Killarney 'Plena' locations are done, but the west side of Kerr from E. 45 to E. 47 still has its line of trees in flower.

The two Washi-no-o trees on the north side of E. 51st, east of Kerr are past peak bloom, and getting their red eyes on April 11, 2020.
I remember that tree - they always used to prune it so short; now it looks a lot better.

The five young Shiro-fugen planted in 2012 as per post #104 are doing very well on the borders of Killarney Park (Killarney Street, south of E. 45th). In bloom at April 24, 2020.
We must give Takasago some credit for hanging around and giving a rosy perspective to E. 46th from Killarney to Raleigh, to counter all that green in Killarney Park. At April 24, 2020.
