    I visited the UBC Botanical Garden (around the parking lot only) for the first time. I was amazed to see a variety of cultivars at one location. Thanks to Wendy, I'm learning a lot!!

    Interesting to see Ojochin starts blooming from the bottom.

    Surugadai-nioi seems way past its peak.

    Two weeks makes a big difference in cherry season. The cultivars that @tknd (Taka) showed in bud are already finishing up. Photos are from April 23.

    'Ichiyo'

    'Mikuruma-gaeshi'

    'Ojochin'

    'Surugadai-nioi' is truly finished now, but there's one cherry.

    'Ukon' has a very yellow appearance as befits its name that means "turmeric'.

    The 'Gyoiko' tree just looks green. I forgot to take a habit photo. First I thought I'd missed the flowers, then I thought they weren't open yet, and then I started to see flowers, though there are still many buds yet to open. The flowers are much larger than last year when I was so worried about them, though they're not quite the size of the ones on its parent in Stanley Park. Usually, 'Ukon' flowers appear most yellow when they have just opened, but these appeared white and green, nothing suggesting yellow. I'm not finding that my photos support what I'm saying, but I'm not going to change my story.

    Prunus maackii is grown more for its striking bark, which is almost all covered up here, than for its flowers, but that's ok. It's a good-looking tree.
