Late blooming Akebono and Fugenzo variation of Sakura blossoms in High Park

Sakura Watch – May 15, 2013 – These late blooms are also sakura – did you know there are a few variaties High Park? The Akebono and Fegenzo variaties bloom later then the cherished cherry blossoms everyone loves to see, but these flowers possess a beauty all their own!

Much larger and fuller in size, these blossoms also begin from deep pink buds and open into large white petal flowers with a few layers of petals to give them their substantial fullness and unique beauty. The Akebono and Fegenzo tend to last longer then the standard cherry blossoms at approximately 2 weeks and these began to bloom over the Mother’s Day weekend.

You can find these in 2 areas – grouping of 3 trees at the bottom of the hillside path near the pond, and also a group of 6 trees along the edge of Grenadier Pond at the bottom of Hillside Gardens.

Hope you enjoy these sakura in a much less crowded park!
