Prunus apetala / Choujizakura チョウジザクラ

Prunus apetala, a deciduous shrub to small tree with grayish-brown barks, inhabits limestone areas in hilly districts, having many divaricate hairs on fresh branches. Leaves are alternate, 5-8cm long, ovate to ovate-like oblong; leaf tips are long in a tail way to become pointed, bases circular to truncate, and left and right uneven. Flowers come on previous year branches before leaves develop, or at the same time - the flowers, white or light red, emerge from axils and blossom downwards in an umbel way. Bloom time: March-April.
