    I have a bush which I purchased about 10 years ago along with 4 apricot trees. It was marked apricot but I am not sure what it is. Attaching 2 photos. Can anyone help identify this plant?

    It's in the genus Prunus (same as Apricot). Don't know what species but it's possible that it was supposed to be an Apricot but the graft had failed and all that was left was the rootstock? Pretty shrub though.

    Probably something like Prunus tenella or P. nigrella.
