cherry buds

Prunus "Pink Perfection", Canterbury Road, Bath, 2nd April 2017




A long spell of mild weather from mid-March onwards has meant a compressed cherry-blossom season with lots of varieties in flower at once.


Perversely, then, this post spares a glance for two later varieties that aren't quite out yet. But already the buds --- if "buds" is the right term for the still tightly furled knops of these two very double varieties ---  are quite an attractive feature in their own right.




Above and below, Prunus "Pink Perfection" buds, a few days before flowering.

Prunus "Kanzan", Victoria Park, Bath, 2nd April 2017






Above and below, Prunus "Kanzan" buds. 'Kanzan' is normally in blossom a bit earlier than 'Pink Perfection' but in 2017 they are just about in perfect sync.
