Re: Plums

While I was checking out a cherry on Hudson near 57th, I saw these particularly nice old plums on 55th. Maybe one day I'll learn to name them.

Nor will it be - these are 'Blireiana' plum trees, so I've moved them over here to the plums thread. It's pretty hard to tell from a moving bus.

Re: Plums

Lotus Johnson (aka ngawangchodron@flickr) has posted some photos on flickr of trees in bloom now on View Street in Victoria. I think they must be the Prunus cerasifera 'Lindsayae'.

Nope, plums. Have a look at the festival's blog for how to tell the difference.

The ones quoted were in bloom in May - 'Kanzan' cherries. Now, end of March, you're seeing plums. It's amazing that there's enough room for all those plums, and then all those 'Kanzan' cherries, in almost the same location.

Cherry Tree Type: Kanzan
Status: In full bloom

I observed these trees this afternoon on walk to shop at Choices Market. Sorry there are no photos as I did not have my camera with me. However, I thought people should know about this area with its several streets of Kanzans. I will try to get back to photograph the trees in the next few day, but I cannot promise anything.
Here's a photo taken earlier this week along W59th heading east to Angus on bike route.

In 2008, the Parks Board told us 17,000 plums. It's probably more now. The numbers were in this thread. The festival is saying there are 40,000 cherries now.

I've seen photos on flickr this week of these trees being in full bloom in Victoria. We don't seem to have this cultivar here. I don't know if it's a very early-blooming variety, or if Victoria is that much ahead of us here in Vancouver. Our pissardi plums in the West End are just at their early very unattractive stage with scattered open flowers, and they're ahead of the cerasifera.

I am sorry that I am better at distance than closeups, and I am not yet clear on the type of tree, but here are pictures from today at Everett Crowley Park bordered by N-S E62nd and Marine Drive, and W-E Kerr and Champlain Drive, plus a two block set on Butler St. between E 49th and E 54th, east of Kerr one block west of Tyne.

Re: Downtown - the first Akebono blossoms of 2011

The blossoms outside the art gallery on the West Georgia side are also looking fine. Take a look if you are also checking out the Canstruction exhibits mostly at the HSBC Pendulum Gallery (also a couple exhibits at 1075 and 1111 W. Georgia lobby, nice one in Four Seasons Hotel by Pacific Centre) - until April 5, date of the Cherry Jam!

Plums.
1 - It's early season and there are leaves.
2 - You have to look closer! There are several of those lollipop looking buds sticking straight out from the stem.
