Can you believe these are actually cherry blossoms?
Okame cherry trees look totally different than other cherry trees with their small dark flowers on a long calyx tube.
Okame trees are currently in bloom right now. It’s a rare cherry tree in Vancouver so it’s worth a visit.
This tree is in Burnaby on Charles street (corner Fell), but there are other Okame in UBC,Kitsiliano, etc. Search the neighbourhood map to find an Okame near you.
