Prunus species (Flowering Cherry)
This plant is poisonous
The “Flowering Cherries" is a number of species, hybrids, and cultivars of several trees of genus Prunus. They are also grown as ornamental plants, usually for their profusion of flowers, sometimes for ornamental foliage and shape, and occasionally for their bark. They do not produce fruit.
The edible cherries generally come from cultivars of the related species Prunus avium and Prunus cerasus. The genus Prunus includes the almond, apricot, cherry, peach and plum, all of which have cultivars developed for commercial fruit and nut production.
