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

    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.
