    Sorry - that's what I meant - it was obvious that you couldn't reach them to find out if they were sticky.
    I think, with those round overlapping petals, that they look more like Sargent hybrid.

    My friend led a tour of rain gardens in North Delta today, and a couple of us hijacked the walk for a bit to get a closer look at these 'Whitcomb' trees on 112 Street and 84 Ave - four on 84th and two around the corner.

    I had a little trouble remembering the location of this 'Whitcomb' we later drove by, but from the shopping centre name across the street, I was able to finally figure out which side of the centre it was - the Nicholson Road side of Scottsdale Centre, and I found the camper on Google street view. This is a very good-looking tree for this cultivar, low-grafted so it looks like a real tree, nicely-shaped canopy.

    I've been watching this 'Accolade' grow up for several years. I wasn't so optimistic about it at the beginning, but it's looking quite nice now. On the NE corner of Fairlight Crescent and Clark Drive in North Delta. My photos from my last visit in the rain were not useful; these are from Ib Nielsen.

    Here is a 'Beni-shidare' I saw on the walk on March 17, not in bloom at the time but it should be in peak bloom right now. At 84 Ave and Brooke Road in North Delta.

    Jake has put a marker on the festival map for these three 'Akebono' at 11855-191a Street in Pitt Meadows. Google brings up the same location for that address if it's called Surrey or Pitt Meadows, so I'm assuming this thread is ok.
    He says that the whole street was lined with these trees, but some home owners have cut these trees down due to roots. There are three trees at his end of the block, and several more on the cross street 118b, though I am not sure what the last tree at the east end of that street is.

    Thanks, Ellen, and welcome to the forums!
    These trees have such an unusual shape for 'Akebono', but the flowers look right. I guess they have been pruned, and that has changed the shape (well, obviously, that's what a lot of pruning is, but in this case, it has done away with the lovely outstretched limbs that one would expect to see).

    Deborah Jones has sent along photos of 'Akebono' visible over a hedge on Scott Road, east side, south of 62nd Ave.

    Deborah Jones sent me photos from the George Mackie Library, corner of 84 Ave and 112 Street, North Delta, which were first posted here five years ago.
