    I wanted to post this as my wife is so excited with her birthday gift from our eldest daughter. It has not arrived yet and won't do for some weeks, but this is the photo of her new Cherry tree. Prunus litigiosa often called the Tassel cherry. I will update the thread when it is planted and especially Spring 2022 with hopefully a lot of blossom.
    Now where to put it !!! Lol.

    This doesn't seem to have made it across the pond yet - all the hits are on British pages (and one French page). Here is a bit more description from the International Dendrology Society:

    Thanks Wendy, I will also be pleased to share photos of it next Spring with everyone over the pond.
