Tree i.d please. I walk past this tree every day to work. A delicate flower on a tree before the foliage appears. I would love to have a tree like that with early blossom and no foliage in early spring in my garden. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Probably Prunus x subhirtella Autumnalis

Thank you Owdboggy.

If you buy one, try to get it in flower. Some of the clones are less floriferous than others. The one we had flowered very sparsely.

Yes it is certainly a Prunus. some species/varieties have pink flowers others white, so a good idea to get one now when in flower.

Agree with Owdboggy. Ours flowered tentatively in December, and is now flowering again … not as bountiful as this one though - what a gorgeous specimen.

Yes I agree Sheilabub, would love to have that in my garden!!

I saw a similar tree today but that was May blossom … very pretty!

May blossom in March? Are you sure?

No Sue, I was guessing … is Blackthorn the same thing?!

Sorry, I meant Blackthorn … I’ve always mixed them up!
