    I believe it is called a flowering plum. I had one in Michigan and it looked like the one in the photo.

    thankyou very much. I mow a few props that have them and they are very attractive right now. I want to buy one now. I can get a 4-5 foot one at my whole saler for 32.20 B&B

    They are a beautiful tree. They grow to 12-15 ft. and keep a nice round shape and need very little maintenance.

    Irregardless of the species it is in the broad class of trimaround. Nothin like screwin up a great stripe with a curve around a trimaround. :waving:

    They are really pretty this time of year.
