Several Akebono at parking Featherstone Way-Riverside Way- Rd 5
Fun at the 2nd Annual Richmond Cherry Blossom Festival today.
More than 200 'Akebono' in bloom at Garry Point Park.
'Akebono' at what is now named Larry Berg Flight Path Park seem to have established themselves (7 years after planting). There are two different sizes of trees - perhaps more trees have been planted since November, 2011.
Interesting park, including mini-runway.
Here is a new-to-us 'Yae-beni-shidare' that looks like it's not grafted. On Tilton at Murchison.
'Whitcomb' are starting to bloom in Richmond, too. I noticed these trees at the west entrance of the Richmond Hospital.
Also, another Anna's hummingbird looking for nectar.
There is no stranger underneath the cherry tree. How true.
I met Deely from Taiwan under the 'Akebono' at Garry Point Park in Richmond today. She was deliriously happy to experience the blossoms. It was contagious.
Some pest control, too.
Many thanks to Deely for sending me to Terra Nova Housing Co-operative in Richmond. Located on Westminster Highway west of No. 1 Road. It is LOADED with 'Akebono' for several blocks. A veritable maze of tunnels! Someone really likes 'Akebono'. Over 100 trees in the complex. Outstanding now.
I think Terra Nova qualifies as a Festival Favourite site.
Nice 'Beni-shidare' in full bloom on east side of No.1 Rd, north of Tucker.
Good-looking 'Snofozam' at 3131 Westminster Highway.
Nice tree. Not at peak bloom yet, but should be there in a week or so.
Just around the corner from the mature ungrafted 'Yae-beni-shidare' in previous post #361,
is a young grafted 'Yae-beni-shidare' on Riverdale, south of Tilton.
This young tree has a higher bloom percentage. Photos taken on same afternoon.
Healthy-looking 'Snofozam' at 5700 Vermilyea Court, south of River Road. Blooming now.

Meet Deeley from Taiwan. She LOVES cherry blossoms.
Deeley told me about the stand of 'Akebono' at Terra Nova, in Richmond, too.
See posting #357.
Precisely pruned 'Shiro-fugen' on NE corner of Maple Rd and Jaskow Gate.
I love the colour combination of pale coral and rusty brown, at this moment.
Five 'Shiro-fugen' at 9260 No 2 Rd., nicely framing the entrance to Covenant Court. Full bloom now.
And five more 'Shiro-fugen' at the entrance to the Tapestry Church, also on No. 2 Rd, just south of Maple St.
These young trees are planted quite close together.
A line of Shiro-fugen trees on the north side of Moncton Street, just past Bayview, wave you on, making sure you're really leaving Steveston on April 29, 2019.
Pandora is in full bloom in Richmond!
There is a row of Pandora Cherry Blossom trees currently in full bloom.
The trees are on Jones Road near Garden City.
COLT is in full bloom. Near Sandman Hotel in Richmond.
There are two trees, the smaller one across the parking lot has more blooms.
There are 3 trees blooming beautifully now.
The trees all look healthy and they are at the entrance of an old mall.
With all the developments going on in the city, I hope the city is not going to re-zone this area, else the tree may be gone together with the buildings.
the 'Rancho' trees outside the casino are in full bloom, no cars just a lovely row of pink!
some more cherries from our bike ride yesterday. Bridgeport and #3, Three heavily flowered trees in the parking area. Bridgeport was so quiet I was able to go across the street and take close ups of these trees....I think it is 'Akebono', but will let the experts confirm. I really like the pale pink on the reverse when in bud.
Lisa, Wendy says to look for knobby swellings on the twigs—the tell-tale mark of Some-Yoshino, as the extra petiole is of Akebono. I think you can see it in this photo of SY in MacDonald Park (Prince Edward at E44, Sunset neighbourhood post #128). Look to the twig at middle-left as it rises upwards.
i do see it. thanks. i have added to my notes :) the petaloid i knew about, but i don't see them all that often on the ones i think are akebono.
