    These 5 large trees are located just outside Park and Tilford Gardens in North Vancouver.

    - they are blooming later than Akebono's of similar size locally which are now losing their blossoms - these trees are not fully in bloom yet.
    - 2-3 branches start about 7 feet high off large sturdy trunks (so was unable to reach any blossoms)
    - photos of buds taken March 27th, the remainder today April 12th

    [edited by wcutler 2012apr14]: I've copied this from Ornamental Cherries, where it was posted to get an ID. These are 'Tai Haku'.

    A large mature 'Yae-beni-shidare'

    200 block of E. Keith Road and St. Andrews North Vancouver - added location to map

    And that's not some strange grafting around the trunk...it's a string of Christmas lights!

    Photos 1 and 4 look like a Prunus salicina cultivar or hybrid, a type of plum. The other tree looks like 'Akebono'.

    About this location - update on types of trees
    At first on the map it said 10 Akebono and then I changed it to read "5 Akebono and 5 of a later variety"

    Of the 10 trees - confirmed now that 6 are Akebono, 2 are Shirotae as per Susan's updated photos, and 2 are yet to bloom and have long stems with green leaves - stay tuned for more photos.

    Waterfront Park - Take pedestrian walkway west of Seabus Terminal / foot of Chesterfield Avenue North Vancouver.

    12 'Akebono' cherry trees located on the western side of Waterfront Park near the BCIT Marine Campus.

    Nice photo opportunities here as these trees are located on a slope with views across to the Vancouver skyline.

    Photos taken at sunset April 13, 2012.

    Have added location to map.

    2 small 'Snow Goose' planted on the perimeter of the circular herb/vegetable garden at Park and Tilford Gardens North Vancouver.

    Only one tree is still in bloom. White blossom flowers look similar to the trees at 3rd and St. Andrews (see previous posts in the North Vancouver blog) which are listed as 'Umineko' or 'Snow Goose'.

    Added location to map.

    2 large 'Shirotae' trees NW corner West 15th Street at Mahon.

    As these trees are quite large I thought they might be Avium Plena variety but on closer inspection there is some pink on the buds rather than being pure white.

    Added location to map.

    The avium 'Plena' flowers are a bit smaller than I expected first time I saw them - not as large as 'Shirotae', and the sepals curl back the way avium species sepals generally do. They're also not out yet, though I saw just a few open flowers on them today in South Cambie on Heather (and now that I look, I see just a few on the one across the street from me). 'Shirotae' sepals are relatively large - maybe the largest ones I know, and are serrated. And the flowers should be fragrant.

    These look like pretty 'Shirotae', not ruined by pruning.

    On a Birch Bark Cherry trunk. Douglas Justice told us that means there are two graftings - the one at the ground to graft the Birch Bark onto the avium or whatever rootstock, and then the one at the top to graft the 'Snow Goose' onto the Birch Bark. I find that very strange and not attractive.
