Akebono flowering cherry. (Prunus Ɨ yedoensis 'Akebono')
Our neighbourhood is full of these lovely early blooming cherries......and I do not have any????. So I had to fix it.
Akebono=meaning daybreak in Japanese.

Lovely Klahanie. Can you believe I have six Japanese cherries in my small garden?! Will take more photos when the sun comes back ā€¦

I had a visit from nine members of my gardening group today, it was fun šŸ™‚. They all went home with a cutting from my (full) greenhouse šŸ™‚.

I know that you have couple of charming 'Kojo-No-Mai' Sheila. I do not remember the others.

I think Vancouver Island (specially Victoria) was over-planted with these trees. They bloom early and we were envy of rest of snowy Canada.
I wish I could have been there with your gardening group. Glad you had fun time.

Yes, Iā€™m sure you would have enjoyed it Klahanie.

We have Prunus Autumnalis, P. cerasifera and P chocolate ice in the front garden, and Prunus Tae haiku in back which has just started to blossom. I must get the camera out this weekend šŸ™‚.

Only know P. Autumnalis Sheila... and not the others.
Looking forward to your pictures.
