April 16, 2022. Here are two late-season double-bloomers, but not the big names. ‘Ichiyo’ are not common, but they’re around, often planted as a pair. We’d thought for years that the ‘Ichihara-tora-no-o’ in the Sunset neighbourhood was a one and only, but last year a cherry scout posted photos of one in Burnaby. These photos were taken last week; they should both have good flower cover now.
