    This is one of my favorite cherry street, 144Str south from 20 Ave. 8 mature Akebono on east side of the street, looking forward what would be blooming soon on the west side. I just remember from last year that they didn't bloom at the same time, but both sides have good healthy trees.

    There are 8 Akebono and 1 Shirotae on 144, but I do picture and can see 2 other Akebono, which are not on 144 but I can see them from 144, so everybody can see them from that place.

    At least 24 Shirotae trees on both sides of 141 Str south from 28 Ave. Big conifers cover up all sunlight, I would go in a week to take pictures in full bloom.

    Beni-shidare?????? in question

    2 nice and unusual trees at 142Str & 24Ave. Can we call them Beni-shidare or this is unknown cultivar. Beni-shidares what I can see now at the end of blooming and with lots leaves. I find these flowers much lighter, almost white and much smaller. I think even shape is different?

    Not 'Beni-shidare' because, for one thing, beni is pink or red. I think the question would be are they some sort of Prunus pendula (shidare-zakura), or is it 'Shidare-yoshino', which Douglas Justice showed us in class, but I don't really know it. And is Edo-higan something else?

    If 'Shidare-yoshino', hairs should be visible on the pedicels (stems), but those branches are way up there, so I don't know how you'd get a photo of that. You could try cropping the original version of your last photo.

    It looks like there are still a lot of buds - seems too late for a single-flowered shidare-zakura.

    I agree, it is late. Lot's of buds. I think I would go there again next week for Shirotae pictures and look at this. How big are flowers of Prunus pendula (shidare-zakura), 'Shidare-yoshino', Edo-higan?
    I did close up picture, pedicels look hairy

    Sendai-shidare

    I think these are Sendai-shidare and not Snowfozam. Trunks tell us about age.
