    Hi people

    I need some help ID'ing this flowering plum (at least I think it's a plum!). I'm sure it's completely ornamantal, but it is so impressive I want more. As you can see it grows amongst a hedge of Sacred Bamboo, and you can only really ever see it once a year when it flowers in spring. The plant is about 1 metre high if that helps at all.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Martin

    It resembles Prunus glandulosa 'Rosa Plea'.
