Felix Jury

Prunus Felix Jury blossom

Felix Jury is a small upright flowering cherry tree, typical of the species Prunus campanulata - the Formosan Cherry.

The blossom arrives early in the spring, and is a deep pink colour, with contrasting golden yellow stamens.

Unlike most flowering cherries, the leaves appear ahead of the blossom - it is often one of the first varieties to show leaves.
