Double Flowering Plum

The Double Flowering Plum or Prunus triloba ‘Multiplex’ burst into bloom.  Some people call this shrub a Double Flowering Almond.

Chance and the Double Flowering Plum

It rained a bit and the blooms popped open.  We didn’t get much rain…we could use more.

I love the delicate double blossoms that look like little roses.

I have seen better form…but this one survives next to the woods without extra water or care.

It always blooms between the time of the Pin Cherries and the Chokecherries.

  2. Hi Chance, You are looking handsome among the pretty blooms. We had one of these growing at Nalley Valley. I never knew what it was! Very pretty.

  3. What a pretty shade of pink, and so frilly. I have the old-fashioned wild plums and they have been loaded with blossoms for the last week, more so than most years. I wonder if that means anything weatherwise.

  4. So pretty. And how nice that these flowering trees mostly come along before the other trees have their full plumage so we can appreciate them that much more.

  5. It sure is a pretty tree and Chance looks so handsome lying beneath it. I hear you about the rain. We had rain the other day but not nearly enough. Went to plant flowers at the cemetery last night and the ground was bone dry. Have a great weekend and Happy Mother's Day.

  7. It reminds me of a pink begonia, too. And Chance is looking quite spiffy. :-)

  8. Those really do look like roses, or as DJan mentioned maybe a tiny begonia. Very pretty.

  10. My friend has one by her front door, but it hasn't bloomed yet. It has a lovely, delicate bloom.

  11. It really is a full bloom with all the layers of petals. I remember a lot of flowering things along the roads but most of them were the simple wild plum.

  12. I'm assuming this is a volunteer plant. I know of several in the woods here. they're kind of surprising to find in the bush.

  16. Such a beautiful time of the year, isn't it? I love the color that has popped from the flowering trees. Chance's whites still look white!

  17. Spring color is always welcomed, especially there in your harsh climate.

  18. What a gorgeous tree! Does it produce real plums? I need to get up North soon so I can get my "orchard" planted. They take years to mature. I want one of those for sure!
