Re: Kitsilano - Shirofugens and Shogetsu It seems to be some sort of tradition in Vancouver to plant Shirofugen and Shogetsu trees together, as if for cherry scouts so that we can compare them and learn to tell them apart! Here's a set on W 8th, east of Arbutus, just east of the train tracks - two Shirofugens and one small Shogetsu. Considering the construction going on behind them, it's amazing they've been left there. First are the Shirofugens. Here they are together - the pinky blossoms (because they're aging, else they'd also be pure white) on the left half are Shirofugens; the pure white ones are the Shogetsu. Here is the Shogetsu.
