The Pendula cherry tree is one of the easiest tree to identify thanks to its weeping branches in the shape of a pendula. This Pendula tree is located at Yeovil street (corner of Karen) in Burnaby North and was visible from Halifax street.
The drooping blossoms are characteristics of the Pendula cherry blossoms.
There are so many blossoms on that Pendula tree! It’s absolutely amazing!
Cherry viewing tip: the tree is at its peak. You should visit soon!
Other location: if you don’t live in Burnaby and would like to see a Pendula tree: the VanDusen Garden has several beautiful Pendula cherry trees, including one of the Snow Fountain (white) variety. You can visit them this week-end during Sakura Days Japan Fair (April 6-7 2013)
Did you know? There are over 40 different cultivars of cherry trees in Vancouver. This spring, make sure to visit a specie of cherry tree you’ve never seen before. Check out the VCBF map to find their location and buy the Ornamental cherries in Vancouver guide by Douglas Justice which has been an indispensable tool to help me identify cherry blossoms for this blog.
