Early Ume blooms

Post  John Quinn on Tue Jan 13, 2009 6:17 pm

One of my Prunus mume trees bloomed quite early this year, mid December. About 6 inches tall.

My wife has a Prunus growing in a large pot outside our front door and it's been in flower since the first week of December and, more incredibly, it's still in flower now!!

Either that or the blooms have been deep-frozen and they just look like they're still alive.

Justin, here are pics from previous years... this year's blooms on this small Ume were lost when some small critter 'pruned' the tree for me!

Ume is a traditional species used for bonsai in Japan. It's commonly called Japanese Flowering Apricot.

I'll post some pics in another thread rather than hijack John's.

OK, I've seen many Japanese Flowering Apricot bonsai. I knew those blooms looked familiar. I actually just looked at a Flowering Apricot thinking that the blooms looked alike.
