The tree catching our eye this week is the stunning PRUNUS cerisifera ‘Thundercloud’ – Ornamental Plum.

With its early spring blossom – the first in the landscape, this ornamental plum is always a welcome sign to say spring is just around the corner! With its clusters of purple buds, opening to blush pink blossom, this tree is a stunner at this time of year.
