    The Great White is looking greenish with age. 'Tai-haku' is finishing its bloom on the corner of E. 47th (north side) and Main (west side) at April 19, 2022. The leaves that opened "coppery red" with the large white flowers, giving 'Tai-haku' its distinctive identification markers, have turned green. Who knew that 'Tai-haku' petals, with their notched, slightly ragged-edged petals, looks reminiscent of Washi-no-o?

    Yes, it's funny what characteristic gives a plant its name, when that occurs in other plants. In this case, it's just the jagged edges that are similar. 'Tai-haku' petals are much more round, almost full circles.

    Avium 'Plena' is out with its retroflex sepals, along side the shedding 'Kanzan' on the east side of Elgin, between E. 47th and E. 49th at May 4, 2022.
