Another mystery tree

Woodland_CreatureMarch 16, 2014

Another mystery tree on my property. Actually it might not be my property.. could belong to the neighbor to the left of me; the property markers aren't obvious in the woods.

Anyway, it looks like a pink dogwood, maybe. It's sort of intertwined with another tree with vines all over it, so I couldn't get a full picture; just the branches and the flowers.

Any clues?

Tabebuia?

Looks to me like some sort of plum, perhaps Prunus x blireiana. It is definitely in that family (Rosaceae) and these are some of the earliest blooming of the flowering trees - in full bloom right now in my area.

Here is a link that might be useful: flowering plum image

Yes, might even be a peach which is in the same genus as plum.

Hybrid almond (Prunus x persicoides).

Perhaps another possibility, the wild crabapples that bloom in the early spring around here are the same color bloom. They have long dark stamens and long thorns on the branches. Hard (for me anyway) to tell those details from the pic.

It's not a Malus. A Prunus as suggested.

The dominant cultivar of P. x persicoides in the US is 'Hall's Hardy'. How it may differ from P. x persicoides 'Pollardii' is not clear.

The former is sold as an almond tree but has hybrid characteristics - notice for instance in the above photo the peach pink coloring present in the flowers.
