April 1, Prunus Cerasifera "Krauter Vesuvius". Common name: Flowering Plum. The summer-like weather today caused the flowering Plum to open a few of its delicate pink blooms. Flower-closeup; Peak-April 9 April 9
April 4, Pyrus Calleryana "Chanticleer". Common name: Flowering Paer. Perhaps the most popular flowering tree currently in the Northeast. When planted in a row (e.g., along Phalanx) the effect is awesome. Familiarity breeds contempt, however. Flower-closeup; April 13
