Our white plums, Prunus cerasifera 'Atropurpurea', are out now in the West End. When I started as a Cherry Scout, Douglas Justice told us that the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival was not interested in photos of plums. I thought, "No problem, I've never seen a plum". Well, it turns out I live in Plum Central. Here are a few streets near me. There are a lot of other streets in Vancouver that are planted just as densely with plums, some blocks all white, others all pink. The blocks in my 'hood tend to be mixed pink and white, but the pink ones are just starting to open now.
