What plant is that?

Seriously... any ideas?

We have four of these young trees, which have just come out in pretty reddish-pink blossoms. The only label I can find that might relate to them simply says 'pink rosea' - two words which mean the same thing. Deciduous, not native... I'm no botanist, no idea.


  1. it wouldn't be a crab apple would it? its deciduous and the flowrs come after the leaves, this time of year.

  2. My mother-in-law visited on the weekend and said exactly the same thing... then we saw a large crabapple in Cygnet and it did look similar. Think you might be right there. Blossoms have now turned white and pink, very pretty indeed.
