    I've been admiring the magical tw0-colour trees in the Guildford area for many years without knowing what they are. Recently I've learned from Wendy that they are sweet cherries, Prunus avium, taking over Kanzan. These Kanzan trees started to bloom in the past couple of days.

    Young 'Snow Goose' row (8 of them) at Guildford Heights Park [154 St & 102A Ave].

    If only that were a pretty tree. Those flowers are so beautiful.

    These are in Bear Creek Park, 88th Ave & 140 St.

    'Shiro-tae' by the playground.

    'Korean Hill Cherry' in the middle of the garden area.

    'Kanzan' by the east parking lot just started blooming.
    Very close to this, there is 'Shiro-fugen' with buds, but it's not blooming yet and I didn't take any photo.

    More magical two-tone trees in the Guildford area.

    153 St & 102A Ave, two trees next to a government building, across from Tap House.
    One with still noticeable amount of Kanzan, and the other with the last bit of Kanzan barely hanging on.

    15765 102B Ave
    20220421 15765 102B Ave - Taka 4.jpg

    10238 156 St, inside a townhome complex
    This one is half hidden by 'Akebono' branches.
    20220420 156&102 - Taka 1.jpg

    And here is a questionable two-tone tree.
    152 St & 100 Ave, 7-Eleven is surrounded by a dozen of 'Shiro-fugen' trees which are starting to bloom.
    I found one tree with two branches of Prunus avium as shown in the last photo. Does it still qualify as two-tones with both being shiro(white)??

    Yes. I just included an 'Akebono' in the Magical two-tone trees | UBC Botanical Garden Forums thread, so this is right on theme, and I'm happy to have the 'Shiro-fugen' example. And these other 'Kanzan' too. But I have to go to sleep now, hope to update the thread tomorrow.

    And this 'Ama-no-gawa' qualifies too, at 88 Avenue and 154A Street. These are almost all low-grafted - you can see how low the rootstock limb starts.

    I knew I forgot a two-tone one, at 86A Avenue and 150 Street.

    I went back to the two-tone trees that I posted 9 days ago. They are now covered with flowers.

    These photos are of the same tree from different angles. Some sweet cherry flowers managed to mix right in the middle of Kanzan flowers.

    This is the new one I found at 15439 100 Ave.
