April 5, 2022. Today features fragrant blossoms. ‘Shirotae’ makes its fragrance particularly obvious in groups of the trees. ‘Washi-no-o’ are much more rare but are a delight to find. The name means “eagle’s tail”, presumably referring to the jagged petal edges. You can share your finds on our forums at VCBF Neighbourhood Blogs | UBC Botanical Garden Forums.
