Thank you so much, Wendy! Are you going to put it on the map?
I did that last night. So I checked again. Yes, it's there.
Laura and Wendy convinced me to take a look at the 'Takasago' on The Crescent.
Glad I went, it's beautiful.
The Yama-zakura on VanDusen Garden's Rhododendron Walk is in full bloom at April 23, 2023.
Recurved sepals on the blossoms.
Like its counterpart in Queen Elizabeth Park, the mature 'Somei-Yoshino' on VanDusen Garden's Rhododendron Walk has suffered setbacks this year.
It's making a valiant effort in front of the Yama-zakura with one blooming branch of blossoms at April 23, 2023.
Above that one branch is the blighted rest of the tree.
On VanDusen Garden's Autumn Stroll, Prunus avium 'Plena' is completely blocking sight of the massive Cedar behind it. In full bloom at April 30, 2023, with the recurved sepals completely clasping the calyces, and a clear view of umbel, not corymb, inflorescence.
Behind the Prunus avium 'Plena' on VanDusen Garden's Autumn Stroll, 'Ukon' is also in full bloom at April 30, 2023.
Its sepals are lifting off, but they don't clasp the calyces like Prunus avium 'Plena.'
In the Cherry Grove on VanDusen Garden's Great Lawn, the late-bloomers are in full bloom April 30, 2023.
Here is 'Ama-no-gawa'.
Tibetan Birchbark Cherry, Prunus serrula, is in full bloom on the far side of VanDusen's Great Lawn at April 30, 2023.
Flowers in umbels, fine hairs on calyces, and prominent lenticels on the bark exfoliating on both trunk and branches.
@Anne Eng has been posting the 'Royal Burgundy' at VanDusen for several years, but I had the idea it was a small tree, though she said in 2017, the year it was accessioned, that it was around 7 meters. So I was surprised today to see what a large tree it is. Shirley Willard is providing a height comparison.
