Yvonne McLean, last year's scout, asked Wendy the ID of this cherry and Wendy forward the e-mail to me. So I visited the tree today (April 29).It locates at the NW corner of W 22nd and Balsam. It is a little too late to identify the tree but it looks like white Pendula grafted. It doesn't look like weeping so much, but I think the tree couldn't get taller becouse it grafted so weeping branches get thicker and had more flowers. White Pendula is not as common as Beni-shidare (red Pendula) in Vancouver. In Japan Pendula (= weeping cherry = Shidare-zakura) is usually white. We are not very sure how to call them, either. In my image, white pendula has flowers like Somei-yoshino but a little small. But this tree is very interesting because it has many flowers with extra petals (more than Akebono) and some look like double flowers. *Both pictuers show the same flower which looks like 2 flowers got together. I know only 1 white Pendula at the south entrance of a Parking lot at Yew and W 42nd. I didn't realise it had flowers with extra petals. It looks quite different.
