April 10, 2022. It’s a race now to show off the lovely mid-season flowers before the showy end-season is upon us. Schmitt cherries have flowers so small, on trees so narrow and tall, that they are easy to miss. On the other hand, ‘Tai-haku’, the Great White cherry, has the largest flowers, to 6cm, sometimes on beautiful wide-spreading trees. You can share your finds on our forums at VCBF Neighbourhood Blogs | UBC Botanical Garden Forums.
