April 8, 2022. It’s still mid-season. Here is another single-white cherry – ‘Umineko’, with petals supposedly reminiscent of a seagull’s wing, for which it is named. The petals are so rounded that the flowers appear to have a star-shape formed where they overlap. The trees’ upright shape distinguishes it from other single-white-flowered cherries. ‘Snow Goose’ has the same parents and looks identical. That the flowers in these photos look different is really just early and late stages of flowering. You can share your finds on our forums at VCBF Neighbourhood Blogs | UBC Botanical Garden Forums.
