    On Martin Str south from 16 Ave are 2 very nice Kanzan trees. They are very -very nice looking, almost like Pink perfection. They do not look as Kanzan and they do not look as Pink Perfection. I saw trees like these in another place, I just can say they look different, more delicate flowers are lighter in color.(on map)

    and very close to them (south) nice Amanogawa cherries

    The 'Kanzan' will all start getting lighter in colour now that they've been open for a while. Compare the colour with how some other 'Kanzan' look now, ones you posted a week or two ago. Do they seem like that or not?

    They do look like more delicate trees, though. Do you have some obviously young 'Kanzan' to compare them to? I can't tell on this small screen I'm using how they're grafted, or if they're healthy trees or not, though I note that you did say they were very nice-looking.

    I think it is kanzan or some variation of it, but even shape more horizontal, branches weeping gracefully and flowers not in so crowded clusters.I noticed those trees even last year, because they catch attention.
