    Pink perfection or Kanzan??? in White Rock / South Surrey

    On 152 north from 24 Ichiyo or Kanzan or Pink Perfection tree.(on map)
    leaves not as dark as Kanzan has, flowers not as light as Ichiyo has.

    [Edited by wcutler 2012apr25]: I think 'Pink Perfection'.
    I found another Pink Perfection tree in this location on parking lot

    Kanzan walk in White Rock / South Surrey

    Amble Greene Blvd from 16 Ave Kanzan trees on both sides, turning Amble Wood Dr, 17a Ave, 133a Str,17Ave,18Ave,

    20120423_AmbleGreeneBlvd16Ave_Kanzan_NadiaWhiteRock0.jpg 20120423_AmbleGreeneBlvd16Ave_Kanzan_NadiaWhiteRock1.jpg 20120423_AmbleGreeneBlvd16Ave_Kanzan_NadiaWhiteRock2.jpg 20120423_AmbleGreeneBlvdAmbleWood_Kanzan_NadiaWhiteRock0.jpg 20120423_AmbleGreeneBlvdAmbleWood_Kanzan_NadiaWhiteRock5.jpg

    crossing 136Str

    and in another neighbourhood walk along 18Ave, (circle 136a Str,19Ave and 19aAve, 139a Str, back 18a- all with Kanzan), there is a nice forest trail inside the circle not to walk twice the same streets. 136a Str planted with Kanzan on east side and Ukon on west side

    Southmere Crescent, the best cherry street in our area, it is planted on both sides with all kinds of cherries, I counted at least 10 different varieties(Accolade, Okame, Beni-shidare, Akebono, Umineko, Shirotae, Shirofugen,Yae-Beni-shidare, Avium, Sendai-shidare, Pink Perfection, Colt just a few steps on 17a).
    But Kanzan cherries are most popular, they are everywhere.
    20120424-SouthmereCr-Kanzan-NadiaWhiteRock.jpg 20120424-SouthmereCr-Kanzan-NadiaWhiteRock6.jpg 20120424-SouthmereCr-Kanzan-NadiaWhiteRock1.jpg 20120424-SouthmereCr-Kanzan-NadiaWhiteRock8.jpg 20120424-SouthmereCr-Kanzan-NadiaWhiteRock4.jpg 20120424-SouthmereCr-Kanzan-NadiaWhiteRock7.jpg 20120425-SouthmereCr-Kanzan-NadiaWhiteRock2.jpg
    If I could, I would rename this crescent to Southmere Cherry Cres.

    10 young Shirofugen cherries started in bloom.
    20120425-SouthmereCr-Shirofugen-NadiaWhiteRock.jpg 20120425-SouthmereCr-Shirofugen-NadiaWhiteRock4.JPG

    several big avium in full bloom.
    20120425-SouthmereCr-Avium-NadiaWhiteRock.jpg

    and Shirotae looks nice

    On 150Str near 21Ave Unknown cherry. I thought it is dying but realized later that this tree is in bloom. Very small flowers (about 1 cm or less), no leaves. Just one branch of this tree is grafted as Shirotae, all others with these small flowers.
    May, 1, 2012. About these white small flowers with 'Shirotae'. I found today two more trees like these, I think it is Shirotae with disease,they are always near another shirotae trees, they try to bloom but that is all what they can produce. So this is not a problem any more.
