We don't exactly know who this cherry is....



but it sure is pretty. It sits all alone on a corner across the road from the "Little Girl" magnolias. At some point in the distant past,it fell through the cracks, label wise,  and no one since has had the heart to cut it down. We could probably find out it's identity, but it wouldn't look any nicer. It actually looks like an early Yoshino, but it's not.

Somebody, I imagine a squirrel, sat in this main crotch and cracked the pits. It must have been a pleasant place for a meal.

you sure there isn't an old paper map with this accession?

I ran into that problem in the Maple "collection' a few years back and found not only a map, but that someone had hand-written a comment about one of the cultivars.

Good idea Rocky,

Carole has taken some steps, but maybe I ought to go to Stefan and see if there are maps. It's in a very distinctive position!
