I adore this tree for its spring flowers which are white fading to rose, and are single and semi-double. It has light green attractive foliage, and then the fabulous autumn colour you can see pictured. It is Prunus shirotae, and is an absolute beauty. If you have space for a prunus (this ones spreads wider rather than taller). It acts as a great natural feeding station for birds. My neighbour loved it so much she has bought one for her garden too.
