    I was across the street at a house for sell cutting the grass last year and seen this tree in my neighbors yard with pretty pink flowers,as i was cutting the grass i noticed the same plant.it was about 4ft and ugly looking but it was the same just small,so i took it.yes i dug it up,

    but it had its own roots yet it was still connected to the main tree i think.it was in a L shape i dug up 3ft of a root that continued past the fence.i cut all that stuff off.it had its own root.still growing good


    Green leaves Pink flowers--which has not flowered since winter
    new leaves are spiked around the edge with a sticky substance
    Grey stem and branches

    i hope someone can help me also i cannot remember the shape of the pink flower

    Thank You

    i dont know about that.see the Japanese flowering cherry tree blooms in the spring where as it's now summer and my neighbors tree also has not bloomed.which is the same as it just 25ft taller,but i do believe this tree blooms in the fall
    also this tree has alot of green leaves and say 100 flowers.tree is 25ft tall and bushy.there is not a bunch of little flowers grouped up.

    i do believe your on the right track,so im not saying your wrong.
    you could be right.it's just that when i picked it at the end of summer/beginning of fall there was pink flowers.

    If the flowers are pink, it would be P. 'Autumnalis Rosea'. There are some photos in this Autumnalis Rosea thread.

    I don't understand this, and nothing to do with what you've said ziggymanmonster. Surely the big cherry tree in your neighbor's yard was grafted. I'm saying that because almost all ornamental cherries are grafted. So the shoot that was attached to the big tree would be from the rootstock, and it would presumably look nothing like the big tree. Yet you say that it does look like the big tree, and the leaves you're showing us don't look like any rootstock leaves I've seen. It would be interesting to see a photo of the large tree if it's still there, particularly with nice clear photos of the blossoms when they open.

    Anyway, if it really is 'Autumnalis rosea', it really is not supposed to start blooming until the autumn. I don't know quite when that would be in Georgia. Here, it's usually some time in November. Did you mean the buds are getting bigger? If it has flower buds, it's probably doing fine and possibly still on schedule.

    'Autumnalis Rosea' has already started flowering around here.

    Today I checked my local 'Autumnalis Rosea'. It still had flowers last month, I guess waiting for summer to arrive before quitting blooming, but there were no flowers at all today on any of the three trees. But what interested me were the leaves. ziggymanmonster, your photos are not all that clear, but it seems to me that your leaves do not look like these (these seem to have coarser serration on the leaf edges and the shape is less round). That makes more sense to me, since I'm expecting that your offshoot would be from the rootstock, though I'm still confused that you say you young tree has buds now. I'm wondering what would have been used for rootstock that would have buds now.

    The one I mentioned as flowering on 14 August is still flowering today. Never more than a few flowers at any one time, but I don't recollect seeing it without any flowers at any time in the last 7 months.

    Because there are so few flowers open at any one time, it doesn't make much of a show.

    Right. If it put out all those flowers in one three-week period, it would probably look great or at least fairly interesting. That's my theory anyway.

    Wow, nice. I don't know anything that looks like that (I hope that's true - it doesn't strike me as the same as anything we've seen here). It's definitely not 'Autumnalis' or 'Autumnalis Rosea'.

    Are you aware of other cherries in your area? Is this early, around the same or later than most of those?

    yes we have lots of ornamental cherries around here.(trees with lots of flowers?)

    no cultivars that i know of.really i not sure what that is.is that people who cut a part of a plant and grow the plant from that cut piece
    but this tree may have been a Plant propagation

    They've been in full bloom for about ten days? That seems about right.

    From the first pictures to the last, continues to seem likely to be 'Kanzan'.
