    Upon further reflection (and viewing the blurry photos in sharpen mode), I agree. The definite pinkness of the blossoms in the guide often fools me when I see the whiteness of the blossoms in natural sunlight on the day. The double flower, bulbous calyx tube and long pedicel match exactly the guide. It should be a nice tree in future especially having the attention of the adjacent tree nursery and far away from traffic and winds which has damaged some of the downtown trees (Choices Yaletown).

    Impressive 'Tai-haku' on northwest corner of Main and 47th. Just past bloom. Missed it by one week, according to a resident.

    I thought I'd discovered these big old 'Akebono' trees on East 54th at St George, but it turns out they have been a festival favourite, probably since the beginning of the festival. [Edited]No, I see that I found these at the same time I first found the 'Afterglow' in 2009. See posting #29.

    I'd just seen 'Afterglow' trees in Kitsilano, but these look much better. On Prince Edward south from 61st.

    North from 61st on Prince Edward is a nice block of 'Akebono'.

    About a month ago I found this block of 'Kanzan' on 51st east from Prince Edward, was hoping to confirm the ID, which I did a week ago, though they weren't really in bloom yet. Still, good enough to get on the map.

    Another big discovery that turns out to already be a festival favourite - avium 'Plena' on 51st between Fraser and Ross. The map entry wasn't linking to Mariko's forum posting with photos, so I got to fix that up.
    20180430_51stPrinceAlbert_aviumPlena_Cutler_P1340698.JPG 20180430_51stPrinceAlbert_aviumPlena_Cutler_P1340700.JPG 20180430_51stPrinceAlbert_aviumPlena_Cutler_P1340701.JPG

    There is at least one avium that is not the 'Plena' cultivar (tree on the right below), same height and shape as the others. You can sort-of see the difference in the full-size photo.

    For a bonus, there is a canopy of 'Kanzan' farther east on 51st at Sherbrooke, runs for a block.

    Found a beautiful collection of 'Kanzan' on East 69th Avenue behind the old Dueck lot. The sun was shining gloriously and the trees invited me to photograph them with my lowly cellphone camera.

    Yes, definitely a festival favourite. See posting #96 from April 9, 2017. Looks like they blooming later this year.
