‘Jo-nioi’ (supreme scent). This rare Sato-zakura (Japanese village cherry) has a shapely, low spreading crown, and masses of pure white flowers in late April or early May; however, ‘Jo-nioi’ is primarily renowned for the delicious, crushed almond fragrance of its flowers. Individual blossoms are borne in profuse, long-stalked corymbs and open at the same time as the leaves emerge bright green. The flowers are five-petaled, about 4.5 cm across, with an occasional small petaloid in the centre of each flower. Only a single tree is known from the Vancouver area, at VanDusen Gardens.
