Pink early spring bloom tree
If I knew more about this pink tree that is first to bloom in the spring in the area east of Raleigh North Carolina, I would be buying it rather than posting here.
This is our second spring in our home about 20 miles east of Raleigh NC, and would like one of these trees for our yard. It is the first to bloom in the spring (early February) and we would like the early spring color in our yard. The tree has sort of a dusky pink flower, and while some specimens are definitely trees, some appear to be large bushes. The ones that are bushes appear to be older as they frequently are seen in old home sites.
From this brief description, does anyone have any idea what these trees are?
They are not Kwanzan or Yoshino cherries.
