Summer's here in the land of the Zeal. But just to back-track a few weeks to spring, I spotted three of these delightful flowering cherries, of all places, in the car park of the Warehouse in Morrinsville. I was newly released from Academic Toil and had time on my hands, so enquired of a staff member out smoking around the back if she knew the name of it. She hadn't even noticed them (how could one not see such gloriousity!?) but directed me to another staff member who had been working there a long time but who, when I asked, also had never seen them. When she had been out to have a look, she announced that she was fairly sure it was a 'blossom tree'. Sigh. Can anyone help? I confess I don't know much about flowering varieties of peaches, plums and cherries, but I'm almost certain it is a double 'flowering' cherry (as opposed to the fruiting varieties).
