Beautiful cherry blossoms and magnolias have bloomed across Montreal (PHOTOS)

Apr 30 2021, 7:10 am

Gorgeous bursts of pink hues have taken over the neighbourhoods of Montreal as cherry blossoms and magnolias are in full bloom.

The springtime trees are remarkably similar and they bloom at the same time which can make it difficult to distinguish one from the other.

According to The Weather Network, there are a few key differences, mainly the number of petals, the size of the flowers, and their shape.

Cherry blossoms have five petals and grow in clusters while magnolias are larger single flowers and aren’t defined by having a specific number of petals. Magnolia shapes will differ whereas cherry blossoms open like white flowers and gradually change to pink over a few days.

Pay close attention to these locally captured Instagram pics to see if you can spot the difference between the size and shape of the flowers below.

Regardless of what you’re looking at, they’re absolutely gorgeous with Montreal’s landmarks and skyline.
