Here's where they are now. At my place in Battleground, only the Asian plums and peaches are blooming.
Peak or past peak blooming:
Crimson Pointe ornamental plum.
Sweet Treat Pluerry.
Nadia Plum Cherry Hybrid.
Early Open with a few flowers Blooming:
Shiro Plum - barely started.
LaCrescent hybrid Plum.
Charlotte Peach. Almost peak blooming.
Mary Jane Peach.
Buds present and swelling but not open:
Hanska hybrid plum.
Ember hybrid plum.
Toka hybrid plum.
I have Hollywood on Toka. I think I'll remove it. Hollywood is way ahead of Toka, and is much more vigorous. I have several other starts or grafts of Hollywood, so removing it is no loss. Except I hate to remove a successful graft of my own doing.
Most of the cherries have swelling flower buds, as do most of the the pawpaws, Asian pears, and some apples.
There are tiny insects moving from flower to flower in the plum and peach trees. I imagine those are pollinating insects. I cut sections from the unknown plum tree, and Crimson Pointe, and attached them to the other trees, as pollen sources. I also hand pollinated a little, for Nadia and Sweet Treat. I doubt that will have much impact, but it's not difficult to do.
