Last year I noticed this lovely shrub blooming by the back porch. I had never seen one like it before, but it sounded like what I had read about flowering almonds.
After a little research on Google that’s what it turned out to be. It’s quite lovely when it blooms, the long open stems are covered in blooms all the way to the tips. When not in bloom it looks more like a small tree with long open branches.
The lovely pink blossoms don’t last long, only about a week before they are all gone. Now that it’s finished blooming I plan on taking a bunch of cutting to propagate many more. I’m thinking I might try to make a hedge of these somewhere on the property.
