    Looks like 'Kanzan' to me. These are not flowering now, in July, right? When were they in bloom down there?

    Could we get you to reply and attach the images here in the thread? After you click Post Reply, scroll down and click Manage Attachments to upload the photos. Thanks. That doesn't mean anyone else will comment, but if they see the photos and think I'm wrong, they might.

    Here in Vancouver, we have lots of streets lined with flowering plums that always have people talking about the "flowering cherries", so just because people call them cherries doesn't make it so. You could post a closeup of the leaves next to a ruler. Peach leaves are supposed to fold distinctly inward and curve downward. I don't think I've ever seen peach blossoms, but I feel better hearing from Ron that it's not a cherry in California that looks like that and still has some blossoms.
