Hi,

I recently joined the forum and I have a question.  Does anyone know what kind of tree this is?  The photo is not very clear as there are other plants in the background.  Is it a cherry or plum tree?

The leaves are plum or crabapple like.  Are the flowers double?

Hi Don,

Yes, the flowers are double.  I have looked at a Japanese Weeping crabapple I already have and they do look similar.  I have just taken some more pics for you.

Hi Matt,
It looks to me like flowering almond. Trying googling Prunus triloba.

Hi Al,  I have looked it up as you said and it does look like a Prunus Triloba.  We love it anyhow as it has lovely pink flowers on it now.

I agree with Al.  Let us know if it develops fruit and what it looks like.

I agree with Al, Prunus triloba. Just ornamental, no fruit. On the picture I post, it is pruned to shrub, every year after flowering is pruned back very hard. It is in my friend's garden in Hungary, the picture was too big, I had to make a photo from the screen, not the best quality.
