    The peduncles are much more prominent in Shiro-fugen. Isn't that the pedicels you've circled on the Kanzan?

    No, the flowers are covering the pedicels. It's kind of a drag that the photos are on a different page now. I'm going to put my photo (well, your photo, my circles) here again.

    In the right circle, the top of the pedicels are just below the circle. In the inflorescence above the right circle, you see the peduncle with one pedicel heading down from that; the other pedicels are hidden.

    The whole of Montgomery Park (W.43 to W.45, west of Oak to Montgomery) has been fenced around and is obviously under re-development, as shown in the photo below. The four Choshu-hizakura trees have been removed. Their Blooming ID 3665 should be updated. February 17, 2021.

    That makes me very sad.

    The Whitcomb in the Tisdall park are in the peak now, but all surround by the construction wires. 20210308_whitcomb-1.jpg 20210308_whitcomb-2.jpg

    The 'Accolade' trees on Laurel south of 52nd are not in bloom yet, except there are open flowers on all the trees, enough for me to see that on this one tree, the growth from the trunk is 'Accolade', so these are either low-grafted or on their own roots? Is there any way I'd know which, short of seeing rootstock growth?

    Here are the same trees on Laurel at 52nd.

    The second photo below shows leaves coming from the roots or rootstock on the ground. So far, the leaves don't look very different from the leaves on the trunk.
