    I was there just this past Sunday and I don't believe I saw any on that side of Metrotown, all construction now, sadly.

    Ive taken them off the map., but if you find that the trees are still there, I've saved the markers, could easily reinstate them.

    I'm expecting @Willard to post photos of this lovely pair of 'Akebono' by the South Pond in Central Park, but I want to add photos to the map while I'm thinking of it, enough to call it a festival favourite location..

    Zillions of cherries on this condo property
    Last year, Janice Lin put the 'Shirotae' cherries at La Mirage, 6055 Nelson Ave, on the map, with photos by Sunny Chen:
    Burnaby

    @Willard and I saw a group of 'Shirotae' at the corner of McMurray and Grange, the block west of the ones Sunny photographed, so pulled in for a look.

    I walked on the property on the Grange side to Nelson, where I saw the trees that were posted last year and several more.

    I did not notice the two 'Shogetsu',though they are likely not yet in bloom.

    Also on the property are two groves of 'Akebono'.

    In Burnaby mountain , there are 2 rows of Somei-yoshino in front of the Burnaby mountain restaurant. My friend , Sunny, found 3 are different, just wondered if those are Oshima-zakukra. single petals.

    Yes, with those big serrated sepals. Nadia put some on the map from this posting six years ago:
    Burnaby
    The location photos here and in Nadia's posting are the same.

    @Willard and I found this 'Tai-haku' in 2017 long past its blooming time and we and my friend who lives a block over have been following it ever since. And posting it ever since. Because we love it.

    And the one across the street and down a bit is also very nice.

    Yong's photos were taken on April 9, when the 'Ichiyo' were coming into bloom. They are fully open now and very noticeable as you drive by. Douglas Justice told me about them yesterday, and sent these photos.

    I stopped by around 5:45.

    Beautiful spring afternoon up @ Burnaby Mountain. Learned from WCutler that these trees are Somei-yoshino. I took a photo of a young tree off the side whose blooms were more eye level to me. Not sure if same cultivar.

    I urged @Josie NewWest to post these here because the last time I saw these trees, I was convinced they were never going to look very good again. It's nice that they get some good press.

    These Tibetan birch bark cherries seem to be pretty much the same as six years ago but they seem to be waiting for the big Akebono besides them to drop their last blossoms to put on their display. If you go there, enjoy the take out pre order from the Nikkei Home cafeteria in the nice little parklet with pond and waterfall across the street.

    Thanks for posting these. When I went 2 weeks ago, I thought the Oshima-zakura were gone as only the Somei-yoshino seemed to be flowering. Would not have thought of going again and wouldn't have gotten to smell the really special almond fragrance!
    Bonus: find the hummingbird on the Somei-yoshino :)

    One kiku-shidare-zakura on a private yard at 1183 on Blaine Drive (near Curtis). Very healthy. Lots of flowers.

    Wow - that definitely wins the 'Kiku-shidare-zakura' beauty contest.

    Four young ama-no-gawa on a private courtyard are visible over a fence on Graveley (between Rosser and Whitsell).

    Mature ‘Kanzan’ and ‘Shirofugen’ blooming now at the MacPherson Outdoor Pool. In the newly-renamed Lewarne Park at Rumble and MacPherson.

    Too bad the pool isn’t open yet. Imagine looking up at those blossoms, while floating on your back.

    Think someone will be able to triangulate the areas I frequent soon haha..

    Surprised that these 2 arent on the map so i'll add them.
    Kanzan rows at Boundary South of Moscrop till maybe the Telus Building near Kingsway.
    Kanzan_BoundaryMoscrop_Yong_20220424_IMG_9795.JPG
    Was wondering why there are only 2 rows. Just hit me that the other side of the road probably belongs to Vancouver and both cities have different plans on what to plant :D
    And at Smith North of Moscrop.
    Kanzan_SmithMoscrop_Yong_20220424_IMG_9797.JPG

    Horsing around the shiro-fugen at Burnaby civic Square :)
    Shiro-fugen_BurnabyCivicSquare_Yong_20220424_IMG_9798.JPG

    At Patterson and Mayberry, next to Central Park Tennis Courts, the Pink Perfection don't seem to be doing too well? The grove only had 3 trees left and growth on only one side. There's also a lone one which looked better on the other side of the pavillion. shirotae seem to be doing alright.

    'Pink Perfection' never do well, and we blame it on the cultivar. But look at that second photo. How many little sticks of the delicate 'Pink Perfection' did they jam into what should become a hefty Prunus avium pole? How was that ever going to be a successful tree? A 16-rib umbrella might be stronger than one having 6 or 8 ribs, but that doesn't translate to grafting as many branches as possible into a single point on a tree.
